BTW: There is a separate gnus group.

Thats an "internal variable". Not sure if you should fiddle with that...

The docstring of function (!) `gnus-summary-save-parts' does not explain

I just did a quick try with 

  (gnus-summary-save-parts ".*" "/home/memnon/tmp/" current-prefix-arg) 

which kind of did what you want, but I don't really want to recommend
that. Better to ask on the gnus list.

And there is also:
| gnus-summary-save-parts-default-mime is a variable defined in `gnus-sum.el'.
| Its value is "image/.*"
| Documentation:
| *A regexp to match MIME parts when saving multiple parts of a
| message with `gnus-summary-save-parts' (X m).
| This regexp will be used by default when prompting the user for which
| type of files to save.
