Bucket and v1 database out of sync after mapping

Hello everyone,

I am using InfluxDB v2.1.1 and I have a requirement to delete a record. I checked the parity between flux and InfluxQL and decide to try InfluxQL. I followed the guide here Query data with InfluxQL | InfluxDB OSS 2.1 Documentation to map my bucket to a database and I was able to use the /query 1.x compatibility API with curl to run SELECT statements. Then I ran a DELETE statement and the record was gone from the database, but the record still exists in the bucket that I mapped to the database.

Are the database and the bucket out of sync after the initial mapping? Is there a way to make them be in sync with each other?

Any help is greatly appreciated!
Thank you!
