But selective self tests are not logged to the selective self-test log
data structure.

The selective self-test log may or may not be persistent across power cycles. It depends on drive firmware. WDC disks typically do not preserve this log.

Note that the selective self-test log is not an actual log. It is only intended to pass info about current selective self-test spans from or to host.

See also info about selective self-tests in '-s REGEXP' section on smartd.conf man page.
