Default Account Emails Automatically Marked as Read even with "Mark as Read" setting off for all accounts

Hi all - downloaded Thunderbird on a new laptop a month ago (specs fairly similar to the Dell Inspiron). Initially messages worked just fine - popups, sounds, the works - but after I added my Gmail a few days after install, every message in my default account is automatically marked as read no matter what settings I tweak. I even added the Mailbox Alert extension hoping it would override the automatic marking as read for the default account, but no luck.

The gmail works just fine - regular sounds and popups for new emails. My default account is a custom domain, but it's a standard IMAP server just like the gmail, so no POP3 shenanigans going on there.

My current Thunderbird version is 102.5.0 64bit, but the problem has been present since 102.4.0 64bit, on W10 Pro.

Ahead of time, I am not using Bitdefender.

Thanks in advance.
