My train of thought is kind of like this: because an app's configuration files can be in so many places, the package's script that takes care of "completely removing" could maybe forget a few places and keep the config files there anyway. But this would be the same as with Windows anyway, especially where registry keys for some apps simply aren't removed.

@Ben Okopnik: I did only mention the app's settings though, not files made with it.
