If you remove a dismounted, EMPTY (meaning no mailboxes have the homeMDB value pointed there) database then it just removes the logical connection between AD and Exchange (e.g: removing the database attributes and database from active directory). You still need to clean up the physical .edb and .log files.

When you go into Exchange Management Console, or delete a database from Exchange Management Shell the database is logically deleted from Active Directory. You would have to go out and delete the database file (.edb) and the log files (.log, .chk, ect) from the physical disks.
