BTRFS Subvolume/snapshot marked as DELETED

ID 10348 gen 470306 top level 0 path DELETED
ID 10408 gen 470171 top level 0 path DELETED
ID 10409 gen 465270 top level 0 path DELETED

Dont worry, first off you get 1 entry per deleted subvolume, the task goes on in the background. Over time, they will go away (how much time? not long)

Here you can monitor it like this
