It is not the ASM instance that is going to remove any RMAN backup even in the flash recovery area (FRA).
If you are using FRA then it is the database instance that will check free space in FRA and delete obsolete backups if needed: this is the FRA "automatic space management".
There is some unfortunate wording use here in Oracle documentation:
- ASM (Automatic Storage Management) instance is managing disk groups and ASM disks as a database file system/volume manager
- FRA "automatic space management" has nothing to do with ASM instance and ASM resources: you can use FRA without ASM instance/ASM disk groups/ASM disks if you want.
