Podcasts you only listened partially to will not get deleted with this option.
iTunes only considers fully played podcasts (beginning to end) as "played".

Podcasts you listened to only partially are also marked with the half filled dot instead of the completely filled to for new ones.
Episodes you already have finished don't have the dot at all.
