Exchange 2016 cu3.  

In the past I was able to delete mail/mailboxes and it would create white space within my database.  

I would check my white space with the follow power shell command.  
Get-MailboxDatabase "datebasename" -Status | fl Name,AvailableNewMailboxSpace

Recently when deleted about 10GB of mailboxes the white space never showed up and my database continues to grow.

The Mailbox database limits are set to 0 for keep deleted items and mailboxes.  Also, the default retention setting are set for each mailbox.  

Does anyone know what else I can check or why my whitespace isn't freeing up?
