Some GPOs are registry keys, some aren't, the security policies for example.
But it has been wrongly stated that you need domain admin credentials to disjoin it. Simply take any credentials you like, even non-existent ones. If not networked, those are not checked.

Are you asking if domain group policies will be removed once the system is disjoined from the domain?  afaik this is true.  What evidence do you have to the contrary?

So the system "thinks" it is a member of the domain, but the domain is unreachable?  If so, do you intend to rejoin the domain?  Even if you will, the domain policies will be reapplied when you rejoin.

Just disjoin the system from the domain.  You will need domain admin credentials and you must know a local admin logon name and password.

the only way I can see you could do this would be a dual boot where you select the non domain installation.  If course you could do this by removing and storing the hard drive and installing a second one with the same Windows installation media and key.

How about this , did you try it before?
Delete the HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft Key (looks like a folder).

Delete the HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft Key.

Delete the HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Group Policy Objects Key.

Delete the HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policiess Key.
