The limit with which the deletion algorithm should work.

This value specifies the time or number of messages after which messages are deleted

Depending on the mode, the input is either a duration or a simple number.

For Mode 1 and 2: If a message gets edited and only meets the filters after the change, the time from sending the message is still used to calculate when to delete the message. This might lead to a message being deleted immediately after getting edited.
