Your issue is partially due to how mod_status is configured only via
SetHandler. Nothing actually stops other phases of Apache processing
from mapping /server-status to $docroot/server-status, it's just that
the module that serves static files [separate from how URLs are mapped
to the filesystem) is pre-empted by mod_status.

Something like mod_proxy OTOH, would have short-circuited that URL to
filesystem mapping.
