Issue with DELTA query on list-items not returning 'deleted' items

I'm using the GET /sites/{siteId}/lists/{listId}/items/delta API in Graph Explorer, following the documentation at However, I've noticed that the API isn't returning any records of 'deleted' items, unlike what's shown in the example at I was previously able to get 'deleted' items with this API a few days ago. Has something changed?
