Hi. This is not true. 
When you do pkg unset-publisher, you can see at https://github.com/OpenIndiana/pkg5/blob/oi/src/modules/client/image.py#L3391 that pkg builds a list of manifests to keep and doesn't remove them.

Gordon, does /var/pkg/publisher/sfe/pkg/ contain manifests of installed packages?
