In case it is ever a question (say like someone from MSFT tells you it works differently), objects deleted in Active Directory go into the Deleted Objects container of the Partition the objects live in. They do not get moved to the Configuration Partition Deleted Objects container.

 There are some special cases here, but under no circumstances do objects from PartitionN go to the Configuration Partition CN=Deleted Objects container once deleted.
