I've been thinking that that is a bug, though I have no idea of
how to fix it so far.  But I can offer a workaround.

1. Close Gnus and Emacs.

2. Make backup files of ~/.newsrc.eld and ~/.newsrc (there might
   not be the later).

3. Start Emacs and Gnus, and read at least one article.

4. Evaluate the following form in the *scratch* buffer (copy
   this form to the *scratch* buffer and type `C-j' at the end
   of the form):

   (assoc "archive" gnus-server-alist)

   Confirm that it returns something like the following:

   ("archive" nnfolder ...)

   If you don't see it (unfortunately), do nothing further.

5. Evaluate the following form in the *scratch* buffer:

   (setcdr (assoc "archive" gnus-server-alist) gnus-message-archive-method)

6. Exit Gnus by typing `q', not `Q', in the group buffer.

Then, the problem has been solved, hasn't it?

The problem is that the server named "archive" in the
`gnus-server-alist' variable, which is saved in the ~/.newsrc.eld
file, does not reflect the value of `gnus-message-archive-method'
being changed by a user.
