I tried to repeat it (just like you said, create a master-slave setup,
DROP TABLE IF EXISTS on master, see what happens on the slave).
Everything worked as documented - both .frm and .ibd files were deleted.

Could you try to create a complete repeatable test case?

Also - as it looks like a bug - you could consider reporting it at
