[rsyslog] Rsyslog spool files not going away

You did not mention about which version of rsyslog collector you are using and whether tls is used for communication and on what OS platforms. During my testing on RHEL 5 and 6, I found the disk files are not going away only with TLS on a lower version rsyslog collector. However the rest of them are working fine.
Regarding the amount of files in the queue directory, The following two tokens control the queue file size and number of files to be created. When the maximum queue disk space is reached, the new arrived messages will be discarded, so the number of files will not grow.
Hope it helps.

The current file for each disk assisted queue will remain, once the DA thread
has been initiated. Multiple files *for the same queue* should not remain.
