bash has nothing remotely comparable.
It is *crazy* flexible, so flexible that there is an autoloaded 'compinit' function just so that normal mortals stand a chance of configuring its *default* setup. (This is the 'zshcompsys' completion system, btw, not the 'zshcompctl' system, which is akin to bash's, and is obsolete.)
