Not immediately, but if you're online they have little chances of survival:
 • entering the folder will make them disappear
 • same if you synchronise (right click menu) the IMAP folder without opening
   it, or if the folder is set to synchronise for offline use (checkbox in
   folder properties)
 • not sure about download messages (right click menu), but it's very likely
   that a cached item without the corresponding message in server is removed
 • discarding the folder cache (button in folder properties) will also cause
   them to disappear (obviously).

If you're off-line or connection with server is unavailable they will be
kept though :-)
