I am not so sure either, there's no documentation for them, but here's
what I assume. 

Nobody looked at this.

This is a problem, and it has not been fixed yet.

Not worth looking at. 


Here's what this seems to be used for: 
(from the page at http://scan.coverity.com/)

 The fixed defects column is calculated by adding defects marked by
 developers as RESOLVED with defects marked as BUG or PENDING which
 are not present in the most recent analysis run. As such, this figure
 may under report fixes (for instance, when defects are fixed but not
 annotated as a defect by developers within the Coverity GUI), or over
 report fixes (for instance, when defects are annotated by developers
 in the Coverity GUI in regions of the source code which are
 subsequently removed from the project's code base).
