`gnus-server-alist' has the docstring

  Servers created by Gnus, or via the server buffer.
  Servers defined in the user's config files do not appear
  here. This variable is persisted in the user’s
  .newsrc.eld file.

I don't like the "servers defined in the user's config files
do not appear here" part, exceptions like that are a bad sign,
but as for what the variable expresses, it's clear what data
it holds.

`gnus-inserted-opened-servers' OTOH isn't documented. It is
defined in gnus-srvr.el where it is then used four times.

gnus-server-alist is used a lot tho, in several files. I think
the "original intended behavior" is simply that it is used
whenever it is needed :)
