I recall thinking that this wasn't well documented.

My understanding is that connected routes are as you describe. (Subinterfaces too.) "Kernel" routes are static routes that Quagga learned from the Kernel route table (and not connected routes, which it learns a different way). So, to clarify your thinking, stop grouping "static/connected". And the difference between static and kernel is that the former are created by Quagga, and the latter aren't.
