Are lastRunArchiveday_N and lastRunArchiveperiods_N still used?

We are trying to debug why Matomo does not respect settings for when it should invalidate archives (they get invalidated on every core archive run, even if we set, as an example, year data to be archived once a week).

Some data rows with suspicious data are entries like lastRunArchiveday_1, lastRunArchiveday_10 etc. They all have dates that are in the past (even dates for 2020), my question is - are these options still used? I don’t have them on a fresh install after running core archive.
