All spam-tagged emails in this folder are deleted automatically after 30 days, trimmed and cleaned as of the mailbox.

However, there is a possibility that the legal emails would be marked as bulk or spam, and they are moved to Spam folder because the spam filter assumed that they were Spans. While using the Gmail web mail service, this performance completely acceptable since user may constantly check Spam folder to verify and look at emails labeled as spam automatically inside the Spam folder.
