Unfortunately those are Carbon attributes and I don’t think we can (or
want to) set them directly.

It looks like the nearest equivalent is the NSWindow level attribute,
which we’re using for z‐groups.

Can you please try the following:

    (let ((frame (selected-frame)))
      (set-frame-parameter nil 'parent-frame frame)
      (set-frame-parameter nil 'z-group 'above))

and see what the UIElementInspector returns? (I can’t build it as I
don’t have xcode installed.)

If you’re able you could try applying this patch:

   else if (EQ (new_value, Qabove))
-      window.level = NSNormalWindowLevel + 1;
+      window.level = NSFloatingWindowLevel;
       FRAME_Z_GROUP (f) = z_group_above;
   else if (EQ (new_value, Qabove_suspended))

and run the lisp above again and see if it’s different.
