You're doing nothing wrong. It looks like they're changing over
to rtsxoff and ctsxon, but these options aren't enabled in stty yet,
and the man pages for stty and termio haven't been updated.
Look at man asyc for other options to open the serial port
with certain modes already enabled, by using devices in /dev/tty*
and /dev/term:

# l /dev/tty1[aA]
crw-rw-rw-    1 root     root       3,  3 Aug 30 12:03 /dev/tty1A
crw-rw-rw-    1 root     root       3,  2 Aug 30 12:03 /dev/tty1a

# l /dev/tty00*
crw-rw-rw-    1 bin      bin        3,  0 Jul 21 06:51 /dev/tty00
crw-rw-rw-    1 root     root       3,  1 Aug 30 12:03 /dev/tty00h
crw-rw-rw-    1 root     root       3,  3 Aug 30 12:03 /dev/tty00m
crw-rw-rw-    1 root     root       3,  0 Aug 30 12:03 /dev/tty00s
crw-rw-rw-    1 root     root       3,  2 Aug 30 12:03 /dev/tty00t

# l /dev/term/00*
crw-rw-rw-    1 root     root       3,  0 Aug 30 12:03 /dev/term/00
crw-rw-rw-    1 root     root       3,  1 Aug 30 12:03 /dev/term/00h
crw-rw-rw-    1 root     root       3,  3 Aug 30 12:03 /dev/term/00m
crw-rw-rw-    1 root     root       3,  0 Aug 30 12:03 /dev/term/00s
crw-rw-rw-    1 root     root       3,  2 Aug 30 12:03 /dev/term/00t

So, /dev/term/00t and /dev/tty00t are the equivalent of /dev/tty1a (terminal),
and /dev/term/00m and /dev/tty00m are the equivalent of /dev/tty1A (modem).

/dev/term/00h and /dev/tty00h have RTS/CTS (hardware) handshaking enabled.
(This is the one you're looking for.)

/dev/term/00, /dev/term/00s, /dev/tty00 and /dev/tty00s have XON/XOFF
(software) flow-control enabled.
