It's quite a mystery. My guess is that NIntegrate temporarily redefines the 
Message[...] function.

Personally, I want to know because I want to copy this behaviour of 
NIntegrate for my own functions, if it is easy. Often I write code that uses 
Check, and I don't want the messages generated and appearing as errors and 
clogging up the output.
