I can reproduce it by this steps.
$ pg_basebackup -D data_standby -R -Xs
$ pg_ctl start -D data_standby -o '-p 5433'
$ pgbench -i ; pgbench -i ; pgbench -i
$ psql -c 'checkpoint' ; psql -p 5433 -c 'checkpoint'
$ ls data_standby/pg_wal ; ls data_standby/pg_wal/archive_status/
archive_mode = on
archive_command = 'cp %p /tmp/arc/%f'
max_wal_size = 160MB
There are no .ready files right after pg_basebackup.
It will be generated after the replication starts.
