It appears that the EU agrees with you although I would have preferred they hadn't sided with Google.

heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

This was a scenario I discussed with my GDPR lawyers back when I was going through this. From what I remember, it was basically that the law was a bit unclear but that my lawyers interpreted it as I did not have to delete someone's messages in a group when they deleted their account. It's impractical to be able to remove all traces of someone who has participated in a discussion group.
IANAL and all that...
