S3 Lifecycle policy really effective within 2-3 days?


I have an s3 bucket consisting of around 53 TB of data . I have enabled lifecycle policies : Expire current versions of objects Permanently delete noncurrent versions of objects Delete expired object delete markers or incomplete multipart uploads

Bucket was created and live since March 2017. I have enabled the expiration of objects after 675 days. Thus all the old objects which were created on 2017-2019 should have been deleted as its older than 675 days as of today 3rd Nov 2022. Its been 4 days since policy is live still , I Can see objects from 2017,2018,2019. Also the bucket size hasn't been reduced. Whats the possible issue? Should I wait for more days? Please help !
