Well, the gnus-agent-expire* functions were originally written for
manual (i.e. administrative) use.  I added the status messsage because
it was rather hard to tell whether the enough groups had been expired.
Since that time, agent expiration has been linked into article
expiration (gnus-request-expire-articles).  This was done to actually
fix a bug in which expired articles kept reappearing in the summary
buffer.

You find the message to be annoying.  Can you indicate how annoying?
I can easily change the message level but I'll probably annoy those
users who expect the message to appear.  Still, re-reading
gnus-verbose for the Nth time, I probably should have made this a
level 6, or possibly 7, message rather than the current 4.
