How to update Bitbucket commit status

Hi,

I’ve setup a pipeline that is integrated with Bitbucket and followed instructions as per:
https://buildkite.com/docs/integrations/bitbucket

However, when I commit to the master branch in my repository, a build is triggered, but the git commit status is not updated. The instructions specifically mention “If you want your Bitbucket pull request’s build status icons to be updated” - does this mean commits directly to master (or any branch that doesn’t have PR) will not have any associated build statuses?

Thanks.
