Hi there,

Thanks for expanding on what you are doing.

I confess that I am still not sure what it is; but that's ok -- I don't
need to understand.

location /test/ {
proxy_set_header a a;
fastcgi_param b b;
my_directive_a c c;
my_directive_b d d;
}

For a request that is handled in that location, three of those directives
could send some "extra" information to the upstream, if a suitable
"*_pass" directive were active. No "*_pass" directive is active, so
those three directives are effectively unused for this request.

What do you expect your module to report for a request handled in this
location?

That may make it clearer what you are trying to achieve.

(If it does not, feel free to ignore this mail.)

Thanks,
