[rabbitmq-discuss] Expired, consumed, but not yet acked - what happens?

What happens if a consumer gets a message and holds on to it for a long
time (maybe getting more messages afterwards), without closing the
connection or acking it, and the message passes it's expiry?

I assume the server just builds up state and starts to slow down. The
expired messages will only be dropped/dead-lettered once acked or the
connection dropped.

Am I correct?
