I just ran
WRKOBJ *ALL/SBMDOMCMD
Look at my results:
Object Type Library Attribute
SBMDOMCMD *CMD QDOMINO702
SBMDOMCMD *CMD QNOTES
SBMDOMCMD *CMD QSYS PRX

Do you know what the PRX means? That means it is a Proxy Command.
Something new in V5R4. Basically it is a lot like a symbolic link in the
IFS. If you do a
DSPCMD QSYS/SBMDOMCMD
you will see that it executes the command QDOMINO702/SBMDOMCMD.
With a proxy command if you do a CHGCMDDFT on QSYS/SBMDOMCMD you will also
change the defaults on the command in QDOMINO702. IBM goes to great
length's to explain this in the V5R4 MTU.

Don't know if this has any relavance to your situation at hand, but it
might be a handy piece of information.

We've actually created a few of our own proxy commands. Let's say there
was a vendor supplied command that was not duped into QGPL or some system
library list portion. We would create a proxy command to their command.
Thus, when we upgraded their software we would not have to worry about
upgrading a copy of their command in the system portion of the library
list because a proxy command would point to the updated command
automatically. A proxy command is like a LF built over a PF. Much
different than a CRTDUPOBJ of that PF. The LF has up to the second
updates, while the CRTDUPOBJ has no updates.
