I have no idea. That's one of the problems with the sonypi events:
different laptops behave differently, and sometimes Sony even changes
the meaning of some events...

Why would you want to suppress a message in verbose mode ? The verbose
option is there exactly for that: show the user all the data coming from
the hardware, and depending on the verbose value only show the data
which hasn't been decoded, or all of it.

I don't think that adding a special hack for this event in an already
hacky driver has some added value.
