No worries, and... No, do not reset.

The "File is currently journaled" exposes whether the Journal and Journal Library information for the displayed database *FILE is relevant presently or merely historical; field PHJRNL value 'Y' or 'N' for TYPE(*ATR) information from model file QAFDPHY with Record format QWHFDPHY. The information is maintained historically, in order that one might infer where the journaled data exists, from which journaled changes could be applied or removed. The information should also be available in the Object Information Record (OIR) for the *FILE object, as displayed with DSPOBJD for *FULL detail, under "Journaling information:". If the information could be reset, that would not be recommended, as the historical information with such obvious value would be lost. IIRC some B&R [save\restore] enhancements [maybe only BRMS?] built some automated recovery features which depend on that information; though presumably only when the file was saved while the file was "currently journaled."
