Outlook doesn't archive flagged messages

I have a user that flags emails as they come in. He also has configured his archive settings for each folder in his mailbox and has set a schedule for the program to run. This works perfectly. However, we have noticed that the items flagged do not get archived. Is there a way to force Outlook to archive these flagged messages anyway?

I am guessing that this is by design.  

Have the user try setting an expiration for the emails that are flagged.  We do not autoarchive here so I am not sure if this would work.

If the user has a rule set up to flag as messages arrive, it may be possible to set expirations in the rule, but, that is some sort of custom action I would guess, and I have never set up a custom action.
Are the flagged messages opened and/or modified in any way. If they are then that will change the time as to when the message will be archived. Outlook does not look at the send/receive date, it looks at the modified date when archiving items.

The only thing special about these emails is that they have been flagged such as flagged for follow up and flag and put into a category. Most of them have not been touched since a couple of days after the flag or categorize was made.
