Amen - this is how dropbox, box and googledrive work. People are use to that convention; crazy you have to use sharepoint for team folders. It makes using onedrive as replacement more difficult.
We recently added the ability to transfer ownership to another user when deleting a user’s account from AAD from the M365 admin portal. If no entry is provided, the default will transfer to the manager. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/onedrive/retention-and-deletion
The manager or newly assigned owner will have the ability to sync that content or download and then move to a shared library or their own OneDrive.Marcus Santiago commented
I'm literally considering Box over OneDrive because of this feature. Using sharepoint as a team folder is so confusing. It's putting up unnecessary hurdles to drive OneDrive adoption. It's so strange to use a sharepoint widget for folder collaboration. You need to have co owners on folders and make it easy to transfer ownership. Box does it so easily and they make collaboration self service.
