If you're dealing with local mailboxes, you should be able to to "C-u G
<del>" on the group to actually remove the group from your filesystem.
If you've already deleted the directory from your filesystem... I don't
know why it would be coming back. A simple "C-k" is enough to
unsubscribe you, and if the directories don't exist at all anymore, Gnus
shouldn't resurrect them. Were these groups on nnml, nnmaildir, nn?...
