Actually on double-checking:

the original error messages
with their help messages are there in the log file
when one uses -interaction=nonstopmode or scrollmode too.

Why then doesn't AUCTeX fetches them there ?

The Error Overview opens the possibility to go to the
log via "l". The additional error message is
usually one paragraph long and it says enough.

LaTeX is more verbose.
