Goal

Delayed Block Cleanout isn't working as expected. Select right after a delete would clean out the left off transactional information, this should happen once and subsequent selects should not have to clean up the information.

But it has been observed that, sometimes (both in 11g and 12c) , on every select after a DML operation, cleanout happens. Also it appears that no cleanup is happening at the commit.
