No, the path for each artwork item is in your media library - this may be the path of a local file, or it may be a remote artwork url - so there's no need for the script to search, it only has to ask Kodi to download the relevant path or url based on the location of the artwork you have scraped into your media library. Of course if the artwork is remote, and the artwork no longer exists at the configured url, then Kodi won't be able to download anything, and you will need to scrape a new url for the poster.

That's what the P option is for - if you remove an item (movie, tvshow, album, etc.) from your media library then the texture cache on each of your Kodi clients will continue to store the old cached artwork (posters, fanart, cover art etc. etc.), which is just wasting space. The P (prune) option cross references your media library artwork with the cached artwork and removes the cached artwork that is not present (or no longer present) in your media library.

Could it be a 'problem' with the clean library part of Kodi then? I'm assuming the vclean parameter calls the default video library cleanup? I just deleted a season of a certain show (the folder is definitely no longer on disk and I don't see the season in Kodi anymore), but in in the path table my database I still see an entry for the path of the deleted season and in the art table I still see antries for the poster of the deleted season and the seasson before that.

Edit: just did a check, I finished season 4 of aanother show. Ran cleanup from with Kodi and pruned my texturecache afterwards. I still see entries to the folder in the path table and art tables. I even see entries for all the episode thumbs of season 3, not for season 4. Artwork for season 3 and 4 were pruned though. Not related to texturecache, but interesting nonetheless.

If it ain't broke: break it, fix it, repeat
