The MLS 3.8.1 release notes state the following:
It infers that it is talking about nonmember spouses. Will existing records of nonmember spouses be deleted?
MLS allowed the creation of a non-member record. LCR does not. A non-member spouse can still be recorded on the record of a member spouse, but there no longer will be a separate non-member record..

In each of these instances, a formal membership record was created and they will continue to exist in LCR. When a member who was never baptized turns 18, there is a procedure in Handbook 1 that the bishop and stake president may follow to cancel the record. If they do not follow that procedure, the record remains.
The records of those who are unaccountable and never baptized are not removed. They will remain in LCR.
