Maybe "if groupbaseexpiry is set to true and the storage method for these
newsgroups does not have self-expire functionality, storing overview data
will fail." (from description of "ovgrouppat" in inn.conf(5)).

It only means that *all* articles go to overchan.
BTW, ovgrouppat is based on Newsgroups header, not Xref. Please notice
that most often (99.99%?) control messages have "control*" in Control
header, not Newsgroups.
