    – Will deleting a field group delete the corresponding wp_post item of type acf-field-group?

    Yes, an it will also delete all of the fields in that field group

    This will only delete the field key references and not the field data

    – If I want to delete all the blank postmeta records that have been saved, I should select them with SELECT * FROMwpcxt_postmetaWHEREmeta_keyIS NOT NULL ANDmeta_value= ” and delete, right?

    Yes, this would delete all of the entries with empty values.
