Normal. The images are expired/deleted so no living images on tapes
(and so not present in media server mediadb - bpmedialist) but tape is still
assigned (present in voldb - vmquery). The voldb cleaning runs from time
to time (end of backup session if my memory serves me right).
Look for explanations on mediadb and voldb for the full story.
