Some trashed photos and videos reappeared in the Photos tab (leftmost tab) in the default Photos app. They have .trashed in their filename, indicating they are currently trashed. After I re-trashed these trashed files, without permanently deleting them, they soon reappeared in said tab again. This time, I both re-trashed and permanently deleted the files so hopefully they won't reappear.

Reported the issue to Google. Meanwhile, any idea why this happens and how to prevent it? Android 12.
