Is Automator's "Watch Me Do" action permanently deleted when it is removed from the action sequence?

If you are referring to the changes you made being deleted (i.e., the stuff it watched you do), I expect it is permanently deleted.

The action itself (in the source list) oughtn't ever be deleted.
