what is your source of the comment? what has XCTL and LINK have to do with whether a transaction is pseudo-conversational or not?

Gaurav,

I am not sure for where you picked abt pseudo/non-pseudo.
Here is basic difference b/w two.

The XCTL command transfer control to an application program at the same logical level (do not expect to control back), while the LINK command passes control to an application program at the next logical level and expects control back.
