My experiences, drawn from hundreds of years is this: You can't really get
a vacuum, because if you did, you would suck all the juice out.

If you want to get scientifically and anally accurate, you wouldn't
have meat in a true vacuum either.

Sounds like somebody is trying out for Kent's job.

just try to get the air out, the culprit in freezer burn. Since you can't
get a hard vacuum with the marinade liquid and body juices in there, the
point of hard vacuuming is moot.
