The retention setting for the object resulting from a multipart upload is calculated based on the time when the multipart upload was completed, regardless of the amount of time that has elapsed since the multipart upload was initiated.

For example, suppose the bucket default retention setting for new objects is 10 days. If a multipart upload in the bucket is completed on September 9th, the resulting object will be under retention until September 19th, regardless of when the multipart upload was initiated.

Retention is not set for the individual parts of an in-progress multipart upload. Replaced parts and parts not used in completed multipart uploads are automatically deleted regardless of the retention setting for the completed multipart object.
