What version of Evolution?  What type of mailbox [local, POP, IMAP,
IMAPX, Exchange, Groupwise, ....]
Sorry, I sent that mail too early: Debian version  3.0.3-2, POP3
account. It does not happen on the IMAP account I have.
I don't think MOVE is the same as DELETE (although they might be the
same in IMAP protocol terms) - most clients for a MOVE will do a COPY +
EXPUNGE {id}.  So the message will not appear in the source folder as
deleted, it will just be gone.
The move I talk about is to move from either POP3 or IMAP to a local
folder. For the POP3 account moved mail disappear and for IMAP they are
marked as deleted, but not expunged. 

Okay, that makes sense, and is the behavior I'd expect.  A POP3 account
is just a local folder to which mail is downloaded (POP'd) when mail is
checked.  For an IMAP copy-to-local-folder a download-to-local-folder
and mark-delete seems correct.

I have requested that the mails are
kept on the server until expunged (maybe this does not work for POP3)

Whatever you do to the local/POP mailbox after you download the message
has nothing to do with the server.  That just means you left the
messages on the server when you downloaded them;  it doesn't [and can't]
have any correlation to what you do to the message after you download
