I've got %y, which is unread and unticked.

I finally went and looked it up: unseen means the message has never
before been displayed in a summary buffer, or seen by gnus or you.
Unread means you just haven't read it. In my case, while experimenting,
I had removed the read mark from three messages in,
then tested from the *Group* buffer. That meant those message were
"seen" but "unread", hence the discrepancy. It's good to have the two
functions -- I can imagine different people wanting different things.
