Job log archiving is not working properly

1- Create a task that launches a job every CAL day in the EXP area.

2- In the node settings, under maintenance, purge in area X, set the 'history retention delay of completed..." variable to 2.
--> this means that job logs that are older than 2 days should get purged everyday.

3- In the node settings, under maintenance, set the 'number of job and resource logs archives to keep' variable to 5.
--> this means that job logs will be archived every day, and archives older than 5 days will be deleted

6 days later, when I check the log/exp folder, I can see job logs from the last 2 days (as desired). But there is only 1 archived folder that only contains job logs from 3 days ago.

There should either be 5 archived folders (1 for each day) that contains the job logs of the past 5 days, or there should be 1 archived folder that contains job logs from the last 5 days.

It looks like the archiving mechanism is only keeping job logs from -1 day of the retention cycle defined in the section.
