Hmm.

With VST 2, if a track is muted, Reaper (if configured to do so - which it is by default) does not create "Sample" events towards the plugin. In that case a "normal" plugin would not do anything at all. I understand if it really wants to do anything between such events, it would need to create an OS thread especially for this purpose.

I did not check into this for VST3s, here the communication between the DAW and the plugin might be different, but I did not yet hear that VST3s generally are not able to adhere to the track Mute state.
