it doesn't ping the server, it sends a IMAP NOOP command which is

Then why (1.4.5 and everything earlier) is the thing lying? Why does it
report anything at all? ping is ping (icmp echo request as a rule), noop
is noop.

Not exactly.  A "ping" is just something from which you expect a "pong"
response, and is clearly thus a generic term to 'find out if something
is alive'.

If it really bothers you - get out more.
