Section 4.6.2, pg.17 says:

4.6.2.  Interaction with RADIUS Client MIB Modules

   Clients implementing Status-Server MUST NOT increment [RFC4668] or
   [RFC4670] counters upon reception of Response packets to Status-
|  Server queries.  That is, when a server fully implements Status-
   Server, the counters defined in [RFC4668] and [RFC4670] MUST be
   unaffected by the transmission or reception of packets relating to
   Status-Server.

It should say:

4.6.2.  Interaction with RADIUS Client MIB Modules

   Clients implementing Status-Server MUST NOT increment [RFC4668] or
   [RFC4670] counters upon reception of Response packets to Status-
|  Server queries.  That is, when a client fully implements Status-
   Server, the counters defined in [RFC4668] and [RFC4670] MUST be
   unaffected by the transmission or reception of packets relating to
   Status-Server.

Notes:

Rationale: Confusion between "server" and "client".
This section deals with client implementations only;
the reference to a server apparently is the result of an
oversight in copy-editing text from Section 4.6.1, 2nd para.
