This is curious.  When I process your document
with the 1.55.0 fo/docbook.xsl, I don't get draft
output pages.  Something is going on in your setup.

The default setting for the parameter 'draft.mode' is
'maybe', which means the draft mode can be turned on
by elements in the document.  Specifically, I can
turn on draft by changing your example to
<article status="draft">.  

When deciding whether any particular element should start
a draft page sequence, the stylesheet looks at the element
itself and its ancestors.  That lets you turn on draft in
a book element, and all the chapters will use draft page

Is it possible your stylesheets were altered to set
the 'draft.mode' parameter to 'yes' somehow?
Or the command line is setting the parameter?
Or does some ancestor element have status="draft"?

Seeing the *-draft masters in the FO output is not the
problem, because all the masters are included in every
FO file in case they are called upon.
