Those files must remain in the repository in the Attic sub-directories in order to ensure that you can reproduce the correct state of your hierarchy at any point in the past. If you back up the repository as it exists right now, and then restore that backup (at any time in the future) those files should still be in the Attic sub-directory.

If they are appearing in the parent of the Attic directory, then I would say that you are restoring the wrong backup (ie, you're restoring one from the time when those files hadn't yet been deleted.)

If you are intentionaly restoring an older backup then it's not surprising that the structure may not match the current repository structure, since again it may be from when those file hadn't yet been deleted.
