I checked the  changelog of xterm. There is one item in Patch #280:

    change default emulation level to VT420 (discussion with Ailin Nemui).

http://invisible-island.net/xterm/xterm.log.html#xterm_280

Anyway, "Pp" value can be configured to several values.
Emacs get the terminal type from environment variable "TERM"  I don't
think "Pp" value is relevant.
