Question about Automatic Folder Clearing and subfolders

OS type and version CentOS Linux 7.9.2009
Webmin version 2.101
Usermin version 2.001
Virtualmin version 7.7
Theme version 21.04
Package updates All installed packages are up to date

I would like to know how automatic Folder Clearing deals with subfolders.

I assume that since subfolders are designated as mainfolder.subfolder in the folder list that this means they are really independent entities when it comes to Automatic Folder Clearing?

If not, then there would need to be some kind of precedence for subfolder rules.
I would therefore expect that only the main folder messages would be cleared and not any subfolders?
Or, am I completely wrong, does the Auto Clearing follow the folder path and acts on messages inside all subfolders?
If it does, maybe the Automatic Folder Clearing dialog needs to have a checkbox to stop the function from impacting subfolders if it is checked?
