They should be still there, try `Y c' in the summary buffer, see

(info "(gnus) Summary Generation Commands")

Change the value of gnus-use-cache from `passive' to some other non-nil
value.  You can then mark those articles as `ticked' or `dormant' and
that will automatically mark them as persistent as well.

See (info "(gnus) Article Caching") and (info "(gnus) Unread Articles").

Alternatively (well, even at the same time...) you could agentize the
server in question and then you don't need any of the stuff described
above since, by default, the agent doesn't expire ticked articles in its
own cache (which is different from the cache described above).
