In the end he knew the difference and as a result of picking his younger self he was able to forcibly override the zetsu which thus finally gave his body the ability to die.
Zetsu? Maybe I missed something..I didn't see Zetsu and even the three forms he created seemed to me to be himself trying to fill the hole left by his former team. Kakashi, Minato and Rin were all his conscience filling the void of his empty heart...Obito filled his void with the only person he could depend on...himself. He duped himself....
