Depends on internal garbage collection implementation probably. Not true
of debconf:

register debconf/frontend foo/bar
get foo/bar
0 Dialog
set foo/bar baz
0 value set
get foo/bar
0 baz
unregister foo/bar
get foo/bar
10 foo/bar doesn't exist
register debconf/priority foo/bar
get foo/bar
0 high
unregister foo/bar
