I think it's too much effort to keep a list of attachment directories which have been created by Org attachment commands. Complexity! (BTW org-attach-sync does not create an attachment directory. It rather checks the state of the directory and acts accordingly.) Please recall that only empty attachment directories would be removed, so removal of a directory--and in particular one that existed before its interpretation as Org attachment--wouldn't be a big deal AFAICS. > Likely this is something which should be controllable via a custom > setting? To be honest I'd rather not make another customizable thing out of it to keep the overall complexity low. OTOH we could easily introduce e.g. customizable org-attach-delete-empty-dirs-on-sync.
