There are a couple of items here.

One is sync settings, one is the slow death of smart playlists.

The sync settings are in iTunes when you connect your phone, click on it's button and go to the Video section. If the setting here is to sync all unwatched, or 10 least recent unwatched, then iTunes is syncing what it is told to sync. The playlist may only show 5, but the sync setting will bring more.

Smart playlist syncing is not as good as it was. You may have to sync twice to get the results to happen. The first sync gets the updated rules and media playback information. The second sync applies the rules to the updated information and updates the playlist.

Have you backed up your iTunes Library this week? If not, you are risking losing your music and playlists....
