can you not delete as opposed to reset the VST instances in PLAY?

there's a wee thing I find a bit annoying in the VST instruments panel in PLAY. If you no longer need an instance, the manual claims you can delete it. This appears only to be the case if it's the last entry, otherwise when you highlight and try to delete, it simply removes the instrument but not the instance holder. So you can finish up, say with VST instruments 1,3,4,5,9 as the others have been removed which looks pretty untidy. Other than obviously saving /restoring the score or endpoint config. , is there no way to really remove these unused instances when you're experimenting with playback configurations?

Dorico won't re-use IDs. Don't get fixated on those numbers: it's simply a monotonically increasing ID. There's nothing left behind that is using additional resources or anything like that.
