Deleted folder keeps reappearing after boot

With early AOKP ROMs I was having an issue with the external SD card being picked up by some apps.

For quite a while I used remount SD to point the ext card to a new folder extSdCard.

Now the default AOKP/cm setup seems fine in jb 4.2 so I deleted the remount app a few ROMs ago.

I found some music apps would cause duplicates so deleted extSdCard as the 'real' folder is storage1 in Storage.

But on rebooting the extSdCard folder recreates. I have no app installed to do this and there's nothing in the init.d folder where else could I look ?
