Because of this bug: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=515301 messages are marked as read when you enter a folder which messages were automatically deleted by retention policy.

Is there a way to delete messages selected by retention policy manually? Is it possible to implement retention policy deletion when user exit Thunderbird and not on every entering the folder?

yes, the retention policy should be applied even if the folder is not manually visited

my situation being folders with RSS feed items.
I used the folder view unread most of the time.
Thus for RSS feeds without any new post, the folder won't be visited and "expired" message just stays there.
