This is phpBB, it behaves as a "new for this session" marker. If you enter a board, then go away for a bit, the board and items are marked read. It's just the way the system is set up

Nothing missing really, that's just how it works. A lot also depends on how long a session is considered active, but I can't remember if that is a phpBB-specific setting or if it just uses PHP's setting.
