Did you get a pinentry prompt to confirm the deletion of the secret key
(actually two prompts for primary and subkey)?

That is the "keygrip"; a protocol independent kind of fingerprint.  The
option --with-keygrip shows it; in the colon listing it is a record
named "grp".  The private keys as well as the key stubs are stored in
files with the keygrip as name.
