This is how a traditional IMAP client works, you mark as deleted and
manually expunge - and move is done through copy,delete and expunge.

In the advanced section of the per account preferences there is a
setting that starts  "Move deleted mails to trash ...", check that you
haven't unset that.

BTW please don't cross post without a very good reason.
