Teams students assignments "submitted" and "working files" folders

I've asked my question in the article that I'll mention, but there is no reply so I'll try here because I'm hard pressed from my client.
According to this article -
When a student uploads a file for an assignment, the file is automatically added to this student's "Working files" folder in SharePoint. When he clicks the "Turn in" button, the file is copied to the "Submitted files" folder but should stay in the "Working files" folder too. The problem is that this is not valid for media (i.e. ".jpg", ".png") files. When a student clicks on the "Turn in" button media files disappear from "Working files" folder. From the Microsoft support they said this is default behavior but I can't find any confirmation about this. So I would be very grateful if a Microsoft representative can confirm this and give me a link to a documentation where this is specified so I can show it to my client.
