Office 365 Deleted Item Retention

Microsoft recently announced that deleted item retention in Office 365 will now default to indefinite. Until now, items in Deleted Items were removed after 30 days. This was announced here:
Microsoft indicates in this blog that it's implemented based on ignoring Deleted Items if the policy name is the default name. I just migrated my mailbox to O365 and it appears that while items directly in Deleted Items are no longer removed after 30 days, items in subfolders are still removed.

In my newly migrated mailbox I had some old subfolders that had been removed and were in Deleted Items. There is no longer any content in those folders but all of the items directly in Deleted Items have been retained.
