Zero is just a concept for a "placeholder." Therefore 000 would not be proper unless you are using them for placeholders for the ones, tens, and hundreds spaces, which would necessitate something more than hundreds. Otherwise, just 0 would suffice. In that list, 000 is the improper notation.

Zero was not represented by the Grrek mathmaticians back in the old days.
0 (zero) came from India, which does make you wonder if anything good came from India, could you reply NOTHING came from India? Further, numeric glyphs we use today are from Arabic, Q. did anything come from there either. Would the anwer be infinite???

I read somewhere that the actual numbers we use in the western world actually came from India via Alexander the great. Old Indian numbers are much more like our numbers than old arabic numbers (which havent actually changed all that much in the last two centuries).
....Further, numeric glyphs we use today are from Arabic...

Though zero is most definitely a number in Modern Times, I assure you
But we have certain notations of writing numbers. We could do:
but we just write "23.781"
0 is an assumed value for an empty digit, in other words
just like 'x' is assumed to be '1x^1'
and (using 'v' as the root operator) v4 is assumed to have a little 2 making it a square root of 4
there are a lot of assumed things in math. A lot.
