They went away once I restricted spam handling to MM on my main computer, which I train carefully and maintain white and black lists accordingly. The only side effect is that I see some spam when I check emails on other devices before main MM handles them.

I figured it out:
I have gmail forwarding emails to my fastmail account and deleting them on the gmail side, hence the deleted messages. And I wasn’t subscribed to all the folders of the gmail account on one of my Macs, hence the deleted messages only appearing on one computer.
Email can be pretty complicated!
