It does not since it keeps the compiled files. If you mean it serious
with "restoring the state", you should call clean here, too.

You can do the same even if either "clean" is called before the
unpatching was done, or if neither clean nor unpatching was done, since
quilt recognizes the state.

The point is really: The state
* compiled files (*.o etc.) from a patched package, but
* unpatched source files
is inconsistent.
