How are orphaned/unlinked resources handled?

For example, I weclipped several pages with multiple images on them. It synced to dropbox but I realized they were too big when the time it was taking was quite a bit longer than usual. Since those images weren't needed, I deleted them from the note (removed all references/unlinked) and resynced. All went fine.

However, when I synced to another device (Android in this case), it fetched a lot of resources and obvious those images were those resources which I had removed/unlinked from the note.

I am assuming that unlinked resources are still uploaded and synced to all devices?

And I assume these resources will get deleted when they are past the history time limit? (90 days in this case.)

If I turn off history or reduce the days, will that cause the resources to be deleted from the sync target?
