Markdown is converted into HTML and cached (aka cooked, pre-cooked) when saving. This makes showing the post much quicker.

The automatic removal you're referring to, has been introduced after that post was last saved, but the existing cooked HTML was not deleted then. Hence, editing it will trigger the automatic removal that did not exist before.

Just save the post and it will re-create the cached HTML.
