It just found four infected PDF deliveries earlier this week, however, while they were sent to the quarantine folder and not just deleted (my config), I noticed the infected deliveries (all spammy PDFs). However the admin did not get any messages about the mailscan success - I think that it would be helpful in many environments, even if the messages were deleted, if the mail administrator got an message about any potential infections that had been discovered in the mailscan.

Currently, any messages flagged by the mailbox scan are placed into the quarantine.  There is no option to delete them.  If...

Are the messages in quarantine included in the anti-virus scanning? I scan them all with VirusTotal before releasing then if they are not detected, but I normally find messages that have been sitting in quarantine for hours and have not been detected by the anti-virus scan.
A nice feature of VirusTotal is that I can just upload the quarantined .msg file to get it scanned.

No the mailbox scan intentionally does not scan the messages in the quarantine.  
 
If you want the mailbox scan to scan the quarantine, you could try creating a mailbox and set the mailbox path to the path of the quarantine queue.  There could be negative side effects from doing this, such as inflating the virus found stats on your server and wasted resources from scanning messages at each scan interval.  
 
The mailbox scan on runs once a day, typically at night when resource usage should be lower.
