It turned out the error in the spooled log was CPF3888. So the V5R4
used here could not restore SAVF containing *PGM and *SRVPGM objects
coming from subsequent versions of OS/400, even if the TGTRLS was set
correctly. We found the following docs which talk about applying a
missing PTF and the issue has been solved.
Here is the docs used:

Given how notoriously short-lived IBM links are generally, and esp. given a likely even-shorter remaining life of those links to down-level\out-of-support release APAR docs, I will include some abstract information with those links, so that their existence in the archives might retain at least some value for having been posted; of course by now, sad that anyone should even still require this info.

VL16000612 Binder
VL16000D01 Binder

Problem Summary
Restore of *PGM, *SRVPGM and *MODULE objects created on a future release fails with MSGCPF3888. The restore failure may also cause one or more of the following VLIC logs, with the given major and minor codes, to be written:
1500 060A Module Object Manager
1600 0501 Binder
1600 0609 Binder

"APAR#: MA33919
Component: 9400DG300 - VERTICAL MICROCODE
Release(s): R530, R535, 5.4


Error Description
Original Program Model (OPM) programs saved on releases after R540 fail to restore on R540 and earlier, even when the programs are created and saved for a compatible target release.
Error messages:
MSGCPF3888 "&2 &1 not restored to &3."
VL16000612 Binder
VL16000609 Binder
VL1500060A Module object manager
VL16000501 Binder

Problem Summary
Please see the ERROR DESCRIPTION section.

Problem Conclusion
The machine has been changed to allow programs saved from future releases to be restored successfully.
Apply this PTF, then restore the programs again.

Oddly, despite the conclusion shown, no PTF details were included; given the others were shown with a cumulative level, that is the minimum cumulative that should be applied to expect probably the problem would not occur; I did not search on the latter APAR to find a\the copy with the PTFs specific to that APAR.
