Yes. C-h v nnimap-split-fancy says:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
nnimap-split-fancy's value is (|
 ("list-id" ...))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

that is, the values specified in ~/.gnus.el when emacs was started.

Later, I modified the file to have an updated nnimap-split-fancy
definition.  I place the point after nnimap-split-fancy and press C-x
C-e, so now C-h v shows the new value and everything works as expected.

When I quit gnus pressing q, and then restart it with M-x gnus, the
variable is restored to its original value, not the one in ~/.gnus.el,
which is the one I have just manually set.

Maybe there is something special about this variable since its help info
says it is a "server variable".
