Files that have long since been deleted still showing up in SharePoint Restore

When I was testing the backup of one of our SharePoint Document libraries I found that only some of the files restored even though the job was successful and had no errors or skipped files. I compared the files to the SharePoint site and the ones that did not restore were not on the site. I figured they could have been deleted that day so I would check again next week. I just checked the restore job and last nights backup is still showing these files under the restore even though they have been deleted from the SharePoint site for days if not longer.

Has anyone run into this before or have any suggestions to fix this?
