That's correct. Computers that have run even one model for part of the way can't be deleted.
All returned model data is retained, along with the details of the computer that produced it, so that the information is available for researchers.

The only way for this to be cleared from a person's account record, is when the project does a massive archive of results, to make the credit updating faster.
This has only been done twice, and both times a few people last credits, due to the very long time the archiving took, and the numerous failures and restarts along the way.
So be careful what you wish for.
