Pixlet push --background still shows muted apps

I have some custom apps that I keep updated with regular pushes. The problem is that I often don’t want to have the apps on screen and would like mute them, as I can with normal apps. The problem is that whenever an update is pushed to the app it’ll show in the rotation even if --background is specified (it just won’t show immediately).

Could muted apps never be shown unless unmuted or pushed without --background? Thanks!
