I think the variable to be refered to is this one:

nnmail-expiry-wait is a variable defined in `nnmail.el'.
Its value is 90

*Expirable articles that are older than this will be expired.
This variable can either be a number (which will be interpreted as a
number of days) -- this doesn't have to be an integer.  This variable
can also be `immediate' and `never'.

For your nnimap groups, you may use the imap-log variable, and check
the *imap-log* buffer for SEARCH requests when the expiration process
goes on.

imap-log is a variable defined in `imap.el'.
Its value is t

If non-nil, a imap session trace is placed in *imap-log* buffer.
Note that username, passwords and other privacy sensitive
information (such as e-mail) may be stored in the *imap-log*
buffer.  It is not written to disk, however.  Do not enable this
variable unless you are comfortable with that.
