I have a gnus installation where the select method is as such:

    ;;; Select Method
    (setq gnus-select-method
          '(nnimap "localimap"
                    (nnimap-inbox "INBOX")
                    (nnimap-address "xxxxxxxx.xxx")))

There's nothing special in the group parameters for the INBOX folder,
currently this:

    ((modseq . "6496")
     (uidvalidity . "1374073954")
     (active 1 . 2140)
     (permanent-flags %Answered %Flagged %Deleted %Seen %Draft gnus-forward gnus-download %*))

The group activation level is 1.

Mail splitting is currently being handled by sieve, not by Gnus.
However, when sieve leaves a message in INBOX rather than sorting it to
another folder, it does not appear in INBOX using `g'
(gnus-group-get-new-news).  Any mail that stays there does show up if I
use `M-g' (gnus-topic-get-new-news-this-topic) on the group.  Is these
anything that is special casing INBOX such that `g' doesn't display new
messages for the group?

I see the same behaviour with a server hosted on a local dovecot 
server but synced to Gmail via mbsync. When I start Gnus  all new 
messages are shown in the INBOX, but new messages from subsequent 
syncs are not show until I hit 'M-g' or restart Gnus.  IIRC this 
used to work until a few months ago.
