All References contains every single imported reference. It includes citations in Groups, and Unfiled.

If a reference is deleted from a group, it is removed from that group only. It remains in Unfiled or any other Groups as well as All References

Citations deleted from All References go into Trash and will be removed from all groups 

Deleted citations will stay in Trash until you empty Trash

It is possible to retrieve deleted citations from Trash and return them to All References or a group
