This discussion did get me looking at the various information tabs available. I did a search of formats:"=EPUB" or formats:"=PDF" or formats: ... for all the document types, and then highlighted all of the titles displayed. I'm doing a copy/erase to another directory. If things work as I expect, I should be left with only those titles that have no document within their directory. I can then delete these. This is much faster than going file by file. I suspect this is going to work, but there are quite a few files being transferred. So we'll wait and see.
It would be nice, if under the formats tab, that a no formats present tab was present.
From what you indicate: You have a 'clean library'. By 'clean', Calibre acknowledges that there are books without any formats (just the cover that Calibre shows you and the metadata backup file)

If you want those all GONE.
Search: formats:false
