apt is not aptitude. I've not seen this in apt and I just tested it by
firewalling a mirror off and running apt-get update. The lists files
are still there. I ran apt-get clean and they are still there. I ran
apt-get autoclean too, just to be sure. Files remained.

If aptitude behaves differently then it is broken.

I believe said flag controls wether or not apt automatically removes the
lists files for repositories that are not actually in your sources.list
file anymore.
