Is it intentional that the Dropbox API also lists out the deleted folders (but it does not list out the permanently deleted) ?

Thanks for following up and clarifying. Yes, that's expected. When you delete a shared folder from an account, for instance, that doesn't actually destroy the namespace; it just removes or "unmounts" the shared folder from the account, but it can be re-added later.

To make sure I understand the scenario you're asking about properly, can you share the endpoint/method you're referring to, as well as the particular parameters/values you're using with it? Thanks in advance!

The endpoint is : 

https://api.dropboxapi.com/2/team/namespaces/list 

 With the following parameters:

curl -X POST https://api.dropboxapi.com/2/team/namespaces/list \
    --header "Authorization: Bearer ***access token****" \
    --header "Content-Type: application/json" \
    --data "{\"limit\": 100}"

This lists all the namespaces which are also deleted. So is this an expected functionality?
