  It is the responsibility of the application to free any application
  storage or perform any cleanup actions for data structures related to
  the deleted key or associated thread-specific data in any threads; this
  cleanup can be done either before or after pthread_key_delete() is
  called. Any attempt to use key following the call to
  pthread_key_delete() results in undefined behavior.

and later in the Rationale:

  No such cleanup is done by pthread_key_delete(). In particular,
  destructor functions are not called.
