Ahhhh, I see -- this has nothing to do with imports at all, it's the
Recentchanges rebuild script.

Running the rebuild script will remove bot flags from all recent changes
entries.

In theory you could probably approximate it based on bot group
membership or something, but it would complicate the query or require a
second pass (and of course would not be exact and may or may not be what
you want anyway.)
