Even messages that came in while kmail wasn't running?

NB: to be 100% certain you should have stopped akonadi completely, or suspended the host on which it is running. *Usually* email accounts are taken offline when you quit kmail but if for some reason they come back online they could have been syncing (if not only the email headers) in the background.

Evidently you don't need to use another computer for Thunderbird if you stopped akonadi (`akonadictl stop`).

If your issue persists even after that you probably should file a bug report because your kmail build is violating the very principle behind IMAP (keeping all state on the remote mail server so you can read your email from any host without having to remember which messages you already read etc).
