Now, the reason for such behavior is clear.

As for me, adding one sentence to the end of current description for
client_min_messages will make sence:

Controls which message levels are sent to the client. Valid values are
FATAL, and PANIC. Each level includes all the levels that follow it. The
later the level, the fewer messages are sent. The default is NOTICE.
Note that LOG has a different rank here than in log_min_messages. Also,
messages with INFO level are sent to the client with any value of this
