Can confirm.

I can reproduce it. However, I'm not sure if this is a bug or an "implementation detail". When you generate a mesh for the simulation, you see that those particles at the bottom, are not taken into account. Not sure if this is right, but it looks like mantaflow is not deleting the particles but keeps them lying around without further influencing the simulation.

@Sebastián Barschkis (sebbas), can you confirm that?

Yes, can confirm the issue too. While the mesh is unaffected, the FLIP particles really should not go beyond the domain borders (the "ring" from your scene is odd too).
Will investigate this issue further.

Will classify as bug then.
