Build Retention Policies for Azure Pipelines #3822

For Azure Pipelines, under 'Organization Settings' > 'Retention and parallel jobs', I see the following:

Maximum retention policy
Days to keep: 30
Minimum to keep: 10

Default retention policy
Days to keep: 10
Minimum to keep: 1

Would it be right to say that the maximum days to retain builds for Azure Pipelines builds is limited to only 30 days, and that there is no way to increase that number?

Also, it's unclear from the documentation which of the two build retention policies the organization's projects inherit from. I have done some earlier builds more than 10 days ago with the builds still retained, and can only guess 10 days not being the limit.

That said, I'd like to know if there's any way to preserve the build logs indefinitely without having to retain each build by hand? I ask this having observed open source projects like VSCode preserve a long history of their builds and have been expecting the same until stumbling upon this section of the documentation.
