I believe it has to complete its stand animation before the graphic system in WC3 removes it.

Thus it takes a while to vanish but is destroyed and will eventually disappear.
If it really is not destroying the effect, then you must have not assigned it to the variable properly (would need to see other trigger to tell).

Just wait 15-30 second ingame and see if it really does persist or not.
