Yes, it is the intent that it apply only to 'messages'.

Do you have a suggestion as to how to make it more clear?

I agree that it doesn't make sense to offer the option when there are
no messages on the page, but as you recognize, this would require an
initial extra pass through the requests as the page is currently built
sequentially, and the checkbox at the top is created before we know if
any of the requests are 'messages'.
