Deleting field groups and fields from field groups does not delete any data related to those fields added when editing a post of other location, it only deletes the field group and field information. There isn’t anything built into ACF that will delete the information entered into fields for posts. The only built in way to delete post_meta from other post types would be do delete those posts and this will cause WP to clean up the post_meta values for those posts.

ACF wouldn’t be so widely used in WordPress if it didn’t have some pretty amazing capabilities.
