They are also accessible via NNTP. The web interface (which I programmed 
almost two decades ago) is just a newsreader and mirrors what the NNTP 
server does.

The reload mechanism simply moved the Thunderbird. I looked for it: You 
right-click on the group in Thunderbild and then find it in the conext 
menu under "Properties" in the tabs "Retention Policy" and 
"Synchronization".

Also note that the messages in p.off-topic are in fact deleted after a 
few weeks from the server.
