There’s no straight forward solution for this, as the gallery / image field allow you to select an image which has already been uploaded and used on a nother post.
If ACF were to delete the image (if removed from one post), it would then remove the image from the library causing post 2 to show an error where the image used to be.
To get around this, ACF would have to test if the image was used elsewhere in the site, etc, etc, bloat.
Because of the amount of code involved in this, I would rather keep ACF light weight and nimble.
Thanks for understanding

ACF wouldn’t be so widely used in WordPress if it didn’t have some pretty amazing capabilities. In this article, we look at a few of the features we’ll discuss during “7 things you didn’t know you could do with ACF” at #WPEDecode later this month. https://t.co/5lnsTxp81j pic.twitter.com/Yf0ThPG1QG— Advanced Custom Fields (@wp_acf) March 16, 2023
