Sigil is an editor, and as such it strives to present the epub you loaded as faithfully as possible. When the search&replace dialog is done, it will be very easy to remove these directly. But Sigil will not remove them for you automatically. Maybe as an option in some pop-up import dialog. Maybe.

Until then (and after too, for those who want to) just run it through calibre to remove these. There's little point in duplicating functionality.

Please do that. It would benefit all readers of those books, since it would speed up display and lower memory consumption on all Reading Systems.
