Any application with _NET_WM_STATE_SKIP_TASKBAR set should not be shown in the alt+tab focus cycle popup thinger.

It's up to the application to set such a hint. There's no openbox option to have certain instances/classes be hidden from the focus cycle popup. gkrellm has skip taskbar as an option, rox pager may be the same way.
