This is not a big issue, but did come as a surprise.

There is an answer I posted to a question about a mountainous planet: What would produce the most uneven but earthlike planetary surface?

A kind gentleman added a comment pointing out I'd not discussed earthquakes in this scenario. So I added a comment saying I would, then edited the question. Some short time later, both comments had disappeared.

I imagine that someone noticed that interaction and removed the now-unnecessary comments -- they'd done their work -- but I just wanted to make sure that that was the custom.

Oh yes, the actual question... Is this expected behavior?

Deleting obsolete comments is pretty normal, either because somebody flagged them as such or because a moderator came across them in normal use of the site. Clearing out obsolete comments makes it easier for new comments to be seen.

I didn't handle this particular case, but yes, that's expected behavior. Nothing bad happened, just routine maintenance.
