[linux-lvm] lvremove does not remove /dev/mapper/...-cow... and ...-real...

I have noticed that if a thick snapshot device is created
# /sbin/lvcreate --size size --snapshot --name snap /dev/system/lvname
And later removed
# /sbin/lvremove system/lvname 

Than the symbolic link files under /dev/mapper/ is not removed

This is applicable on RHEL7 and sometimes on RHEL6.

Is this a known bug?
Or why is the links still there?
