2.4.17 --> 2.5.3 Delayed expunge?

Upgrading from 2.4.17 to 2.5.3 I kept the same configuration files, save
for changing the names of some deprecated variables in
Now I am noticing some unexpected behavior; namely when messages are
deleted (in Thunderbird, Trash emptied and folders compacted) the
messages seem to persist in ~/cyrus/user/my_username
Was this the behavior before, and I just didn't notice it because I'm
only ever looking in the mail folders when debugging, or is this a new
feature of 2.5.x?
In particular, I notice that the /etc/cyrus/cyrus.conf file appears to
have these new fields which I didn't have before:
# Expire data older than 28 days.
# deleteprune cmd="cyr_expire -E 4 -D 28" at=0430
# expungeprune cmd="cyr_expire -E 4 -X 28" at=0445
I commented them out, thinking these were for removing old mail no
matter what; i.e. deleted or not. Am I suddenly getting a delayed
expunge feature that I didn't have in 2.4.17, hence need to uncomment
the pruning lines above?
