ETFs Zakat Liable Amount always 30%

I try to get the Zakat liable amount for some ETFs, e.g. VGT, QQQ, QTEC, SOXX …
It’s always 30%. That’s a bit strange because some underlying stocks have much lower Zakat liable amount (e.g. GOOG with 9%).

Could someone help me understand this?

As-salamu Alaykum Wa Rahmaa Tu’lahi Wa Brakatu,

The 30% is a rule and not necessarily a calculated per stock per share thing.

The scholars generally just advise giving 30%.

Some say 100%

Others say even less than that.
