This is a fairly old question, but for anyone else that’s wondering.
1) If you delete posts the data stored in custom fields will be deleted.
2) If you delete a field group or a field any data that was in the fields will remain, but see #1.
3) If you rename a field, and this includes moving a field into a nested repeater, the data that was in the field is still there under the old name. A repeater sub field name looks something like this
repeater_name_1_sub_field_name if you move it to a nested repeater then it looks something like
repater_name_1_nested_repeater_name_1_sub_field_name. The isn’t anything in ACF that will move the data from the old field name to the new field name, it remains in the database. See #1
