Empty directories on uninstall?

My setup installs VBA using the supplied Microsoft merge modules.  This creates a VBA subdirectory under Common Files/Microsoft Shared, which contains a subdirectory VBA6, which in turn contains a subdirectory 1033, all of which have files installed into them.  I have another component that installs project specific files into the bottom level 1033 directory.  On uninstall, all the files in these directories, and the bottom level 1033 directory are removed.  However, and empty VBA and VBA6 directory remain.  Is this because by having a component which copies files into the 1033 directory, it somehow prevents the VBA merge modules from deleting these directories?  Any help appreciated.
