Maybe she just asked it for conversation sake. The full story was classified and she couldn't read it.
Oddly, in FWWM Gordon implies Jeffries is a *famous* missing FBI Agent people learn about during their Agent training. This is also a bit inconsistent with the new show where it seems he isn't well known. Per the FWWM script Gordon said " COOPER, MEET THE LONG LOST PHILLIP JEFFRIES. YOU MAY HAVE HEARD OF HIM AT THE ACADEMY."
I imagine the idea in FWWM is he's famous the way D.B. Cooper is in real life, though the "blue rose" aspect may not be famous. The new show seems to have dropped that idea. (I guess it's possible he's famous for something other than being missing.)
Saying "you may have heard of him" is a far cry from saying that his disappearance is famed in FBI circles, or that prospective agents are taught about him at the academy. That's a leap.
Gordon clearly thinks Jeffries may be taught to agents in the FBI training academy. He specifically mentions the academy.
