I have raised bugs in the code(https://bugs.gnucash.org/show_bug.cgi?id=797338) and documentation (https://bugs.gnucash.org/show_bug.cgi?id=797337) proposing changing the "U+R" and "R" tags in the import main matcher to "U+C" and "C" where the curent use of R refers to the term reconciliation. The use of the term reconciliation in this context may cause some confusion with the reconciliation process of checking transactions for a period against an external statement, particularly for new users. The import matcher does not assign a "reconciled" status to an imported transaction but does set it as "c" cleared. You would not normally be importing transactions in which the splits to the account being imported to are already reconciled, i.e. marked "y" in a register however this might occur if you are importing records separately to a credit and a bank account where there are transfers between them (credit card payments). In this case the importer would flag the record not to be imported where there is an exact match to an existing transaction. AFAIK there is no checking of the reconciliation status of the existing transaction in GnuCash in the matching process but I may not yet have dug deeply enough.
In a discussion with John Ralls and Frank Ellenberger over other changes to the import matcher documentation, I initially proposed "U+M" and "M". John felt "U+C" and "C were more indicative and clearer. I am raising this here to canvas a wider audience before making the changes. Please comment here preferrably (or in the bug comments) if you have any objections/support to the proposed change .
