Ah, there's the rub.
If the batch program is running under commitment control and ends without committing the database changes those changes are lost. It is no different than a PC client not committing entries.

Does that hold true for batch jobs? Or does a batch job 'assume' a commit if the job ends normally??

Yes, check the journals and journal receivers. One question, are they forgetting to COMMIT transactions? I once wrote a program that forgot that. Hey, data's there! Sign off, data's gone!? Didn't commit, so it did a rollback.
