As far as I can tell, they're exactly the same (or close to it; a
"native" group is one who is a member of the "primary" select method).
A "native" Gnus group is one which doesn't have a protocol+host part,
like "", as part of its name.  But the only groups that
don't use that syntax are those which are part of `gnus-select-method',
i.e. the "primary" select method.
