The value looks like:

When you reactivate Akismet, the value is updated and resets the option back to look like this:

When you deactivate Akismet and delete akismet, the "recently_activated" option keeps this in the option value.

Hello @GeekStreetWP and wellcome to trac, thank you for your report, I'm able to reproduce the 'issue' but I'm asking myself if it's a real issue, since after deletion, when you reinstall the plugin, it's appear to "recently_activated"'s tab, so if we reset back this option I'm fearful that this feature won't be available.

let's ask a second opinion if needed.
