It's the last line under "States in folder comparisons", which says:
    "Finally, the most recently modified file/folder has an emblem
attached to it."

Granted, that's not immensely informative. Problem is that I didn't
want to say "it's the little star", because that's theoretically
themeable. In practice, we ship our own version of the icon, so we
probably should just say it; could you please file a bug? Ideally,
that whole section would have a graphic showing what the states
actually *look* like, but images in docs tend to get out of date.

Yup, that's correct.
