--- Comment #1 from Fabian Keil <fk at fabiankeil.de> ---
The man page could make this more obvious but this is the expected behaviour.

The -F option only affects snapshots located after the snapshot
to which the dataset is rolled back before starting the receive
operation. Without the -F option they would cause the receive
operation to fail.

Snapshots outside the "rollback window" aren't relevant for
the receive operation and thus can be kept.
