How to delete an Exchange 2010 storage group

We have an Exchange 2010 SP1 organization with one CAS/HT server and 2 mailbox servers on Server 2008 R2 SP1.
 


To free up space on one of the mailbox servers, I will be moving all of the active mailboxes off of a storage group to a storage group on another mailbox server and then will need to delete the database when completed. I ran a GetMailboxDatabase command to export a list of all of the items in this database and noticed what looks like system objects with the ObjectClass attribute being "Mailbox, UserDisabled". These mailboxes are Microsoft Exchange Approval Assistant, Microsoft Exchange Federation Mailbox, SystemMailbox{58d9a488-e06c-46e8-bbb4-a906d5b948c7} (this mailbox's ObjectClass attribute = "Mailbox, ExOleDbSystemMailbox").
 


I don't see anywhere in EMC to move these mailboxes to another database. What would be the impact of running the Remove-StoreMailbox command after all of the active mailboxes have been moved with the above mailboxes still shown as in the database?
