I changed those lines to:
    (when verify-hostname-error
      (message "hostname error")
      (push :hostname verify-error))

But there was no extra message in *Messages*.

But then I tried modifying the lambda in the (let* ... (verify-error
...)) expression in gnutls-negotiate to read

                              (lambda (check)
                                (when (string-match (car check) hostname)
                                  (copy-sequence (cdr check))))

(I added the copy-sequence call), and now it seems to be working as it
should, so it looks like *something* in that function is modifying the
value.

For me, just setting the value of gnutls-verify-error to (("muchlearning\\.org"
  (:trustfiles))
 ("news\\.gmane\\.org" nil
  (:trustfiles :hostname))
 (".*"
  (:trustfiles :hostname))), and then accessing news.gmane.org in Gnus
via NNTP over TLS results in the value of gnutls-verify-error changing.
