Godaddy expired domain transfer

My domain recently expired on 12/05/2021 and I wanted to transfer it to a new registrar.

So I initiated the transfer.

Unlocked the domain and got the transfer auth key and initiated the transfer at the new registrar after paying the fee.

I then receive an email from godaddy saying the following.

Your domain could not be transferred. xyz.com couldn't be transferred to another registrar for the following reason:  Express written objection to the transfer from the Transfer Contact. (e.g. - email, fax, paper document or other processes by which the Transfer Contact has expressly and voluntarily objected through opt-in means). 

I then get in touch with godaddy support and ask why the transfer was denied, they told me that the domain had expired and that I had to renew it before I could transfer it, I asked them to show me where it said so and they didn’t have any documentation to that effect.

I then stated that based on the icann [rules][1] stated under the FAQs that under point 11 I can transfer an expired domain.

In anycase I filed a complaint with icann regarding this.

However since I received a transfer auth code, does it mean that the transfer will go through?
