>For proper eggs you don't put them in as moisture builds up on the inside of the shell.
Pardon? It's the shell that's compromised that increases how internally porous it is after a soda*/chlorine wash, the internal membrane is therefore more susceptible to infections once this barrier is lowered. There's already enough moisture inside the membrane, which is as sealed as it can be, and therefore no real threat. Unwashed eggs from the UK also show good faith that the hens aren't trampling about in their own shit. They usually lay in slanted hatches that gently roll onto a conveyor belt which carries them to the inspection/packing area.
I keep them in the fridge out of preference. Keep them where you like, but don't ever put myths about eggs about ever again.
*Soda does the most damage.
