Yep, you're right (they're proved text book maneovures) but on some specific phone models developers go a few steps further and dev scripts (flashable zip files to be used before changing the kernel or ROM) that deep clean/wipe reminent files/folders' such data left behind by old kernels and ROMs; or they have done for the S2 etc to date.

It was just a query.
