Removing NFS datastore from PVE 6

I want to shutdown a shared NFS server that is setup in our PVE 6 cluster. I went to Datacenter -> Storage and Remove for the datastores that used that server. They all disappeared from the hosts in the GUI but when I do a df on the unix shell I see that NFS server is still mounted on all the cluster members. 18730543488 99079936 18631463552 1% /mnt/pve/backup 37484181888 82560 37484079872 1% /mnt/pve/backup2 93711488896 426883328 93284605568 1% /mnt/pve/backup3

Shouldn't Proxmox unmount these do or do I just need to go in and manually unmount them from the command line?
