When you drop a user, the system deletes individual privileges granted directly to the dropped user, and privileges obtained through role assignment, from dictionary tables.

Dropping database objects that exist in the user space prior to the DROP USER statement (required) removes any privileges on the objects from roles and other users or databases.

Any privileges granted by the dropped user on objects outside the user space remain in the system.
