I've definitely been confused here. Finally got to the online library—you're absolutely right—according to Printer Device Programming,

The merged document can be printed on any IPDS printer configured with AFP(*YES) in the printer's device description.

The overlays can only be merged with a spooled file that was created using a device type (DEVTYPE) of *SCS, *IPDS, or *AFPDS. The *AFPDS must have been created on an AS/400 system.
