Pages and blog posts can have a workflow assigned to them that includes the Read Confirmation function.  In this case, the Read Confirmation status icon (circled red below) will appear when the page has reached the final state of the workflow.

If a previously published page is updated at any point, any assigned Read Confirmations will reset set once the page re-enters the final/published state in the workflow.
