<<SNIP>> there is no mention in Arpeggio's manual, and, as

The message is just a status message and thus won't appear in the

Just a note of clarification...

While accurate that status messages will not appear in the joblog, the appearance of those messages, as seen in the message status line [sometimes referred to as line 24] of the [effective] /display file/ of the acquired device can occur only when the *STATUS messages have been sent to the External Program [Call] Message Queue (*EXT). Whether such messages will actually appear at the display for a[n interactive] job depends on the job attribute established via the Status Messages (STSMSG) parameter of Change Job (CHGJOB) or the *STSMSG special value for the User Option (USROPT) of the Change User Profile (CHGUSRPRF)].

_Preventing the display of status messages_

Conspicuously then, Status messages are not restricted to being sent only to the *EXT PgmMsgQ. Yet when not sent to the External queue, the status messages still will not appear in a joblog, as contrasted with other message types that will appear in the joblog according to the LOG filtering rules. That is because for a status message, irrespective of to what program message queue the message is sent "No message information is stored in a message queue" for the *STATUS message [that can only be sent to a program message queue; see msg CPD2525] and as a consequence, "a status message cannot be received" [by the Receive Message (RCVMSG) or the API]:
<www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/api/content/ssw_ibm_i_72/rbam6/ssmsg.htm>

But like the *ESCAPE message, the Sts and Ntfy message types are also of the Exception Message (*EXCP) class of Message Types; all other message types [e.g. *COMP, *INFO, etc.] are in the non-Exception class. Thus also why a status message that is sent to other than *EXT can act similar to an *ESCAPE message [/percolated/ in the same manner] in the receiving program, and why the Monitor Message (MONMSG) supports enabling a monitor; only those message types of the Exception Message (*EXCP) class, including *ESCAPE, *STATUS and *NOTIFY Message Type (MSGTYPE) can be monitored.
