I was wrong, says nnimap.el:

(defconst nnimap-mark-to-flag-alist
   (lambda (pair)
     (or (assoc (cdr pair)
                '((read . "\\Seen")
                  (tick . "\\Flagged")
                  (draft . "\\Draft")
                  (recent . "\\Recent")
                  (reply . "\\Answered")))
         (cons (cdr pair)
               (format "gnus-%s" (symbol-name (cdr pair))))))
   (cons '(read . read) gnus-article-mark-lists)))

Sorry for the confusion.
