I never used it, but apparently not.
When you first get a mail, the Babyl header for that message reads:
When you read the mail, it changes to:
If you move to another message, then put back the unseen attribute on
the message you just looked at, eg:
(rmail-set-attribute "unseen" t 1)
it changes to:
The leading 0/1 appears to mean "has this message ever been reformatted?".
There is no equivalent flag in mbox. rmail-message-filter was
basically called whenever that flag changed from 0 to 1.
