Nodes don't listen to that command, they rely on action from the node itself. This communication is normally done on the tcp control channel.

Just a quick follow-up. Skip's newsline experimental reflector/node 0018 does send a "disconnect" to IRLP nodes on the IRLP control port. If you're having issues with it disconnecting, or failing to clean up $LOCAL files, this may be an issue with your specific node.  When I connect to exp0018, it disconnects at the end of the news playback just like any node would disconnect.

Well "it" disconnects, but your node doesn't. Calls to reflectors (and
experimental nodes) are fairly blind in that there is not an underlying
TCP channel to send/receive info.

So your node will continue to be "connected" there until you issue the
"end" command on your end, either by DTMF, by being "blocked", or by
timeout or some other timer.
