Hard bounced email shows as removed from record in Unusable emails list but is still active on constituent record

When looking through the Unusable email list in Online Express, some emails are indicated to have been removed from the constituent record by a strike through the email address, but were never removed.
When sending emails, Online Express looks to see if the email address is deleted, if the email address was marked inactive, if the constituent is inactive (the case here), if the constituent is deceased, or if the constituent was deleted from RE.  If an email address on a record meets any of those conditions, it will be considered hard bounced and marked as removed.
