Peeked my interest, what I found on the internet;

UNTRACKED : Packets can be marked as UNTRACKED if they've been targeted in a raw table chain to bypass tracking.

Anyone else?

Thank you for your quick response,
I do not understand which packages they are and what they do in the network.
And why are they allowed in the router?

Untracked are connection that are not steered by Connection Tracking wich looks like a "mother chicken", if those connection are known to ther and were the have to go.
When a connection is stray and not know it will not pass her beak (control) and be removed.

Untracked traffic is traffic that is marked that is from a other chicken and should be not touched by connection tracking. This marking can only be done inside router.
Two RB760iGS (hEX S) in series. One does PPPoE/IKEv2 and the other does the rest of the tasks.
Running:
RouterOS 6.46Beta / Winbox 3.19 / MikroTik APP 1.2.8
Having an Android device, use https://github.com/M66B/NetGuard/releases (no root required)
