`rclone serve docker -v` running on my linbox

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

why is rclone serve docker -v is running, even after a reboot?
--- did a sudo docker system prune,
--- if i kill it rclone server docker, a new process is created.
--- removed rclone/rclone image, but that process remains

ubuntu@rclonedocker:~$ sudo docker image remove rclone/rclone

This is how the process of docker volume plugin looks to the host system (remember that docker containers are just process/filesystem/network tables in the linux kernel and host system can see processes from all tables). Actually the process runs in a special OCI container interacting with and managed/restarted by dockerd, hidden from ordinary docker ps output. Check out docker plugin ls to see plugin containers (or systemctl list-units depending on your chosen install method) and behold.
