I believe that the Google Search Console would not show you the older messages in the Google Search Console, if you just recently verified the site.

She posted this on Twitter saying, "Got added to a GSC act yesterday and I'm seeing a past message!"

I believe in some cases Google did show old messages to new verified users but Marie does this a lot and this does seem new.
