I generally like this feature of ACF, not deleting data. My experience with clients is that when they change their mind several time and go back and forth, they don’t want to have to re-enter the data when they do. They expect that it will be remembered. If ACF checked and deleted it, I’d end up building something to keep it from happening. I don’t think extra data in the database is an issue most of the time.
