As a general comment, maybe these options should be named like 
"FlushRDNSS" instead of "Remove".  That might set the expectations 
closer to "remove stale entries".

I'm also wondering if these could be the only supported behaviour, 
i.e., is a toggle needed at all.  Is it feasible that someone would 
want to turn this off?  Maybe in a scenario with multiple advertising 
routers, but even then it's maybe not a problem.

Or, is there a case where some of these would be On and others Off? 
Maybe "FlushAdvertisementsOnExit On/Off" (or whatever) could do 
everything with just one toggle?
