Are Messenger read receipts reliable?

I noticed that when I send a Messenger message, it sometimes only gets ticked as "Sent" instead of "Read" or at least "Delivered" on my side, even though the person on the other side said he read it.
I'm sending them with Messenger from a Windows 10 desktop. (UK to Spain, if that makes any difference).

Any explanation to this?

Hi,

I think your contact has turned off the "Send Read Receipts" option of their account, that's why you only see the "Sent" or "Delivered" status, even if they confirm that they've read your message.
