As the name implies, Differential Voltage means Difference of Voltages across the load or the source, so there is no hard requirement to have zero-crossing at the mid-point.
However, it is usually the case with mid-point voltage as zero-crossing. This is because differential voltage usually terminated by equally-matched resistors of a T-network, passive balun, or by differential amplifier.
