within JACK and ALSA *sequencer* MIDI frameworks, all MIDI is
"normalized" - there is no running status passed to applications and
they should not use it themselves.
if you use the ALSA "hw" MIDI API, then you can see and deliver
running status-based messages.

running status is a wire-level optimization that serves no useful role
within a contemporary computer.
