Exactly as I thought. So mutt is not doing this in the most robust
manner. Because from the mail reading pov, the message is indeed new.

Indeed, the mail is unread but also not "new". It *has* been accessed.
The system has no way to indicate that the access was by the intended
reader, your neighbor, the cat or another program. Computers are not yet
that "intelligent". But you are "picking hairs". Mutt has performed in
this manner for many years and that manner has been acceptable to its
users.
