I commonly review questions tagged delphi, sorted by newest, and just now it showed "1 question with new activity":

live refresh indicator

So as always, I clicked on that bar to show it. And I noticed that this question showed here as "modified".

But yet, when I opened it up, it didn't show that it was modified.

It's my understanding that if you modify your question within the first minute or so, it doesn't show as a modification. The OP did in fact quickly edit their question right after asking it, after I asked them.

Shouldn't this say "asked" for instead of "modified"?

After refreshing, it shows "asked". But when I clicked on the message to show new activity, it showed "modified".

Are you sure you were on the newest tab? I've never seen a "modified" prefix there. That only shows up in the "active" tab, where it always displays "modified" no matter what. – animuson Sep 15 '13 at 17:45
@animuson Yes, I always watch the Newest tab. Just confirmed. – Jerry Dodge Sep 15 '13 at 17:46
I know downvotes mean nothing here, but I don't understand why I must get one on this. – Jerry Dodge Sep 15 '13 at 18:24
Don't know either; I've reproduced this, and it sure seems like a bug to me. I've edited again to emphasize that this appears only when using live refresh - and I'll further note that it doesn't matter if the question was stealth-edited, all live-refreshed questions show up as "modified..." – Shog9 Sep 15 '13 at 18:34
Yeah, now that I've been watching, every single question that comes up says "modified" – Jerry Dodge Sep 18 '13 at 0:59
