This is by the way how you can I think remove all emails or multiple
emails from certain labels as well. I don't know how to apply that to
the script but it is an option.

What I don't get is why you'd ever delete anything from anywhere other
than "All Mail" (the archive). If you are archiving absolutely
everything then deleting from the inbox will never delete anything in
reality, as you've found, as what's deleted will still have presence
in the archive. Anything in Gmail that has two labels on it isn't
going away. Only stuff with the trash label that's been assigned
that label for 30 days will be deleted "naturally."
You can, of course, do manual purges, too, but I don't understand why
one would do that other than from All Mail.
I don't generally archive anything. If it's to be kept it sits in
Inbox and I can easily find it via a search. But, to each his or her

*The terrible state of public education has paid huge dividends in
ignorance. Huge. We now have a country that can be told blatant
lies — easily checkable, blatant lies — and I’m not talking
about the covert workings of the CIA. When we have a terrorist attack,
on September 11, 2001 with 19 men — 15 of them are Saudis — and
five minutes later the whole country thinks they’re from Iraq —
how can you have faith in the public? This is an easily checkable
fact. The whole country is like the O.J. Simpson jurors.*
