The <manifest> is a list (id, url, media-type) of all the files in the epub,
the <spine> is an ordered list of ids of the html files which will be displayed when you read the epub,
and the <guide> is... I'm not sure what it's purpose is in an epub but I think the items in there are used by Kindle formats.
My observation
OPF (section) Cleanup does not always get done... Unless:

Manifest: you move an existing file. (you can move it back after a move)
Spine: rename the file
Guide: assign a semantic to a different file
