If you're talking to a modern IMAP server, then Gnus will issue QRESYNC
commands to the server and will get all new events that have happened.
This includes read/unread marks and all the rest.

If the server doesn't support that, there's not much that Gnus can do
without agressively re-requesting all the data on the server, and that's
going to be s-l-o-w.  So I don't think this is a bug.
