octomap is launchable even if it's removed

I noticed it when I could not change the frame_id of octomap. When I launched it it displayed: /octomap_server/frame_id: odom_combined . This was strange because I had changed the frame_id to odom in the launch file. But nothing changed. So I took the launch file to an other directoy but still it launches. Then I removed octomap from my workspace and compiled it new but one can still launch it. I am really confused. I am launching: roslaunch octomap_server octomap_mapping.launch

Did you install Octomap using $Sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-octomap?

That happens because the executables are saved in the workspace. First, you should run catkin clean octomap_server and then build it again! Or just remove the /build and /devel directories
