I'm not inclined to believe PR statements like these when there's no way to verify them.

Can you support your assertion? The infrequent cases where someone manages to extract or recover supposedly deleted data cast a lot of doubt on your claims.

In any case, even if it's not Facebook specifically, it seems overwhelmingly likely that the majority of companies do not actually delete your data.

FB is/was regularly audited by Irish DPC, I think one of the topics was user data deletion. I think that the results were public.
