Wedges are only data structures in memory that are not persisent.
You delete them with dkctl delwedge.
Wedges are automatically created when a disk is attached from
information on that disk (MBR, BSD disklabel, GPT) and only if
your kernel has DKWEDGE_AUTODISCOVER and one or more of the
Using DKWEDGE_METHOD_MBR and DKWEDGE_METHOD_BSDLABEL is difficult
because autodiscover applies to all disks including your boot disk.
DKWEDGE_METHOD_GPT is easy unless you have an EFI system that uses
GPT on the boot disk.
gpt destroy will erase a GPT, autodiscover will then not find
anything to create wedges from.
