From a legal defensibility perspective if the data exists regardless of its location (e.g., recycle bin), it is a reasonable expectation that O365 have an ability to search all content and preserve responsive data. A SPO or OD4B recycle bin is technically just another folder housing data for 93 days (stage-1, stage-2). This folder like all others should have the capability to allow discovery and 'in-place' preservation using Microsoft's Security and Compliance tools. It is surprising this limitation still exists since these posts are over 2 years old.
