According to the man page, that will remove *all* rpms, not only those

And after trying it, I found out that it did *not* remove the rpms of
the packages I installed manually. Neither did zypper clean --all.
I'd say this calls for a a bug report.

I find it hard to believe that this is a bug. My gut tells me it's just
a "simple" configuration issue, but I don't know.

Anyway before I file a bug report, I would appreciate it if someone
could confirm.

Yes, it's a bug. 'zypper clean' should get rid of the files.

To your former question: yes, you can just 'rm' the files without any
side effects.
