I think we are talking about two different things.

The topic here is not paragraph direction. 
The topic is alignment.

Eli described it in full, the summary is:

 Eli> To fix the alignment, you need to append the LRM to each subject:

Separate from that, the gnus-summary-line-format
should remain customizable. On a larger screen, mine is:

 (setq gnus-summary-line-format ":%U%R %B %s %-60=|%4L |%-20,20f |%&user-date; 

That means, directionality can be triggered by
different fields. 

Until it is possible to fully localize Gnus/Emacs,
bidi-paragraph-direction for Summary should *always*
be left-to-right. No questions there. 

The topic is alignment. The way to do it is LRM
as Eli described.
