I guess that not, silence seems to modify LaTeX's warnings and error
messages, i.e., it works on the macro level. The font messages appear
*after* the TeX run. Perhaps hours of studiying the TeX Live
documentation reveal a way to switching that logging off. Unable to
spend them, I actually run dvilatex to see the relevant messages.
When they are ok, I run pdflatex. As to hours: I also wonder that
today the \tracingstats message doesn't appear anymore.
