I actually figured it out, sort of.  I’m sure there are better ways of
handling it, perhaps the + and - should be sent using
nnimap-send-command, but this, at least, works.  As only muting part
of a thread will confuse Gmail, we select all articles belonging to a
thread that in one way or another has been included by
gnus-summary-work-articles.  Then we add \Muted and remove \Inbox.
Finally, to make it clear that something happened in Gnus, we kill the
thread.  It’d perhaps be better if we could use a custom mark, but I
couldn’t figure out if that was OK to do.

(defun now-gnus-summary-mute-articles (n)
  (interactive "P")
  (let (articles root-articles)
    (dolist (article (gnus-summary-work-articles n))
      (unless (member article articles)
        (let ((parent (gnus-summary-article-parent article)))
          (while parent
            (setq article parent)
            (setq parent (gnus-summary-article-parent parent))))
        (push article root-articles)
        (if articles
            (nconc articles (gnus-summary-articles-in-thread article))
          (setq articles (gnus-summary-articles-in-thread article)))))
    (sort articles '<)
    (when (and articles

                                      (nnimap-article-ranges articles))
                      (nnimap-command "UID STORE %s -X-GM-LABELS (\\Inbox)"
                                      (nnimap-article-ranges articles)))))
