I don't think this really applies here. Least not to apt from my reading
This option defaults to on, use --no-list-cleanup to turn it
off. When on apt-get will automatically manage the contents of
/var/lib/apt/lists to ensure that obsolete files are erased. The only
reason to turn it off is if you frequently change your source list.
Configuration Item: APT::Get::List-Cleanup.
