Like most X10 modules. The WS467 has a power line receiver in it and no power line transmitter.
So locally changing its state will not send any information back to the WM100 and it will not know you changed it.
So what you are seeing is correct.

Some of the Insteon modules that still can accept a Primary X10 Address in them. Will send information back onto the power lines that the WM100 or other X10 controller like the CM15A may see.

Thanks for the explanation!

I interpreted this as including local switching:

The WM100 has an active ‘sense’ technology that will adjust the status of the devices in the app regardless of if the signal was sent from the WM100 or any other source (like a hand remote)

The WM100 can't sense the WS467s status as it has no signals being sent to show it is changed and it will not respond to an X10  Status Request. As it has no power line transmitter to reply with.

A remote, motion sensor or another controller. Sending an X10 power line command to a module. Should be seen by the WM100 so it would then know the modules status was changed.

Nope. The W467 is not a source. As Brian stated,  it is only a receiver. Looking at the X10 web site, "Controllers" are a source.

Some of the Smarthome Insteon switches which are *still* compatible with X10, WILL send out their status when switched locally. However I do not know the models
