Add -vv to see gory details.

rpm removes only files that were included in the package being removed.

If you have directories that are not in the package, but created as part
of installing on certain paths, then directories will not be removed.

If you have generated files that are not part of the package, then
directories will not be removed.

All depends on what package and which files.
