On EFNet, the commands /onotice /omsg (and undocumented) /wallchops behave by sending the PRIVMSG or NOTICE command with the @ prefixed channel name; as in @#mIRC. On Freenode, it attempts to send multi-targeted individual PRIVMSG or NOTICE commands instead; as in Nick1,Nick2,Nick3,Nick4 ...

I thought these commands' behavior was based on the 005 numeric, eg /raw VERSION reply, for the value of STATUSMSG. STATUSMSG is the same for both of these networks.

EFNet:

351 ircd-ratbox-3.0.10(20160113_12-29315). irc.mzima.net :egGIKMpZ6 TS6ow 0MG

Freenode:

I've found at least a couple of threads with raw 005 responses posted where it specifies WALLCHOPS as a command:

Could it be anything to do with that?

My guess is that WALLCHOPS verb may also change how these commands behave. However, neither EFNet nor Freenode present WALLCHOPS in 005. I still don't know why mIRC sends individually targeted /onotice and /omsg, as opposed to @#channel targeted.
