Can a metatruth be *true*, even when it's impossible to know if it's not
in the collection of meta truths, resulting from all available
definitions, permissible reasoning methods, within the underlying logic
framework [FOL(=) in this case]?

Calling such a thing a "metatruth" does suggest that it is some form
of truth.
