nnml-find-group-number takes a second `server` argument, which you 
might hardcode to empty string, but like all things gnus, it's 
fragile.

Under the info node "Summary Buffer -> Finding the Parent", some 
clues are given

I use nnimap but all my attempts at `M-x 
gnus-summary-refer-article` failed.  The info node goes on to say,

This didn't work for me either, but I didn't try very hard.  As the Message-Id
looks like <61f22aad-0e47-438d-b4af-bec4e8191a1b@meta.discourse.org>, it seems
unwieldy to get at a message from its Message-Id.
