Therein lies the problem, there is no single definition of "uniqueness". There are multiple incompatible definitions. Further, if we relax the --score-min settings enough then by some definitions there will never be any unique alignments. This is why MAPQ is a generally more useful concept and you'd be better served just forgetting about the term "unique" in this context.
