My assumption was that if component is in workflow, the status should be "Unapproved" when it is in some step in workflow before the real approval status is assigned, but in my case it is "Undefined"

David has answered the question, just to make a clarification of his last comment. Components current Approval Status in the workflow is the Approval Status of the component in the last finished activity.

The "Undefined" status you are seeing with the last activity (that is still not finished) is not the current Approval Status of the component, it's just saying it's still not known.

You can check the current Approval Status of the component in Tridion_cm database by querying ITEMS table with the component you are using in the workflow. There is a column there called APPROVAL_STATUS_ID...
