Subversion does not know that they were added as a result of a merge.
As far as Subversion is concerned, they may have just been created by
you by hand. If Subversion were to remove these upon revert, it would
destroy original work of yours which does not exist anywhere in the
repository, which would be very bad. Therefore, Subversion merely
reverts the addition of the items, and leaves them there so you can
decide what you want to do with them next.
