When the ''Patrolled edits'' feature is enabled, some users can choose to mark
all their edits as patrolled by default.
If a new page is created by someone who has not checked this box in his
Preferences (or by someone to whom the box isn't available), the new page is
considered as unpatrolled and is highlighted in yellow in [[Special:Newpages]].
Trusted users can mark this page as patrolled and the yellow highlight disappears.
But if someone creates a new page (unpatrolled) that is edited by a trusted
user, the page stays unpatrolled in Special:Newpages (with the yellow
highlight), although the trusted user's edit is marked as patrolled.

fix a typo and the user wasn't really paying attention? Marking a paged as
patrolled should be effortless enough that automatic assumptions like this can
Ok I get it. Thanks for your comments.
Also note that the "trusted user" can mark the edit as patrolled by himself,
because only users who can mark the edits as patrolled have this checkbox.
