Yes, that's how Subversion treats deletes: it only deletes the folder,
no need to delete the files within too (they're deleted by the folder).

I suspect that those unexpected files have the svn:mergeinfo property
changed and therefore don't have text changes but only property changes.

> 3)when comparing from the revision graph and clicking on "switch comparison", does it do the compare again, or does it simply exchange the words "added" and "deleted"? (therefore only showing the folder as added, without its files)

It only changes the words and the urls, it doesn't do the comparison again.
