No, unless you possess the shares in your Demat account, users cannot short sell using the CNC product code in Zerodha.
CNC stands for Cash and Carry, which is a term used in equity delivery-based trading. STBT is not available on Zerodha (Sell Today Buy Tomorrow). As a result, if you use CNC code to make a sell order in Zerodha without having the shares in your Demat account, the order will be denied.

If you ever do not close the intraday position within the specified timeframes, the MIS code activates auto square-off by the system. When you’re using the CNC code, though, the system does not activate auto-square off, so you can’t place a sell order before holding its stock.
