Those directories have to exist after DROP because snapshots taken when you
drop, and the snapshots are in a subdirectory of those directories.

nodetool clearsnapshot

Will clear the snapshots; I don't believe there is any way to make
cassandra actually clean up the directories. If I were you I might file a
trivial feature request in the Cassandra project JIRA.
