Archive & Purge Wizard does not delete Attachment Records


We are using Pega 8.4.1 (upgraded from 7.2.2) & we are planning to use OOTB Archiving/Purging Pega feature to maintain system performance by reducing database processing demands. 

After scheduling the process, it appears the feature only archives & purge work object & history table records, however, the related records in the attachment tables (pc_data_workattach & pc_link_attachement) still persists in the table. 

As per the link below, I was under the impression that the wizard takes care of all related records and archives in the form of a zip file.

while importing the zip file back into the system, I can only see work object and history records. There is no record for attachments. 

Am I doing something wrong or I should raise Incident for that?
