H'mm, I don't know what happened to my last reply. I distinctly remember composing the email, but It never got posted to the group.
All Alerts types behave independently with respect to the needs tracking, by Band, Mode etc, so you could as example have Countries being tracked by Band only without regard to Mode, while at the same time have States tracked by both Band and Mode. The choice is yours and will impact how a State & Country is flagged as no longer needed. All of this is handled automatically by JTAlert when running the rebuild operation.
The State & Country alerts, by default have the same Yellow background coloring (yellow), with the text color being different to distinguish between the State & Country alerts. My guess is that your seeing a State Alert and misinterpreting as a Country Alert. You can tell which Alerts were triggered by examining the Callsign Tooltip of the alerted callsigns and observe which of the location details are highlighted.
An alternative to the Callsigns window and the Callsign tooltip to determine what alerts were triggered by a decode, you can use the Decodes window. It will display all the triggered Alert types for a Callsign within their own dedicated columns so you can quickly see what alerts were triggered.
