In your case you are explicitly unconfiguring the top-level array.
I don't recall exactly how things are unconfigured at shutdown time, 
but I don't think the RAID arrays actually get unconfigured -- and 
that is what would need to happen in this case to get the underlying 
devices marked as 'clean'... (right now just the last (remaining)
opened partition is closed, and that's enough to mark the array as
clean.. but the array itself is not explicitly unconfigured)
