We have no data on the PLAAF being interested in the design just like you said. Only the PLANAF.
I hope the PLAAF picks a single engine WS-15 design to replace the J-10. A dual engine is not cost effective for them.

The only interesting bit is the red underlined part. It mentions full static test for a certain unnamed project. Could be the J-31/New carrier fighter.

The J-31 is not better than the J-20, but certainly it is much better than the J-10 and the Su-35. The biggest problem is that ShenYang does not have the financial resources to complete this project.

I think this is/was only valid for the demonstrator phase and as it seems it is now a fully founded project
