I think, Gnus doesn't do anything different when sorting mail summaries
or other summaries.  The only explanation I can think of is that you've
set Group or Topic Parameters overriding some sorting variables for a
certain set of groups.

Depending on how you've customized them, the settings could be either in
your ~/.emacs, your ~/.gnus.el, or in ~/.newsrc.eld.  Could you please
grep those files for "sort"?

Well, you already told us that `C-h v gnus-thread-sort-functions' inside
a summary buffer had the correct value.  But were you completely sure
that you did that in one of your mail.* group where the sorting is not
as you like?
