If you Recover an improperly closed file, items are changed and modified, but not reported. The Recover Summary says "0 item modified"


Recover should say that the file was not properly closed,  and that items were modified or "changed"


Not properly closed is a "problem",  even though the file is safe to use

How to replicate
