When you drop a table, the system frees the disk space used by the dropped table (including any secondary index subtables) and any fallback copy, removes any explicit access privileges on the object, and removes the metadata for the dropped object from the data dictionary.

The data dictionary does not maintain metadata for volatile tables.
