Cephfs storage not unmounted on removal?

After adding and then removing a cephfs instance in the storage gui I noticed that it was not unmounted and/or deleted from /mnt/pve/[title]. I was wondering if this was intentional or not?

Note: This was my 2nd cephfs storage instance in case that matters. I cannot remove my primary to do testing but in case you're trying to replicate and getting different results.

Steps to replicate:
1. Using gui (storage -> add) create a CephFS instance ID "TestID"
2. Remove CephFS ID "TestID"
3. Check for /mnt/pve/TestID
4. Check mount list for /mnt/pve/TestID

Very Respectfully,
