To be more specific, I am asking about grounded Pokémon on Misty Terrain since they are the ones that gain status protection from it.

Yes, Leech Seed isn't a status inducing like Paralysis or Poisoning is, it's a debuff.

Leech seed does work in misty terrain. As SpookyTerrain said, leech seed ain't a status inducing move

Maybe phrase it a bit differently? A Status Move is any move that isn’t classified as either Physical or Special (indirectly dealing damage, if at all). What you’re referring to can be better understood as a Status Condition, or as a Status-Inflicting Move.

Sorry for being kinda nitpicky lol
Status move is a classification. The one misty tterrain protects gainst is status condition
