As mhiremat@adobe.com mentioned, keep in mind that libraries are essentially an XD file that's been published as a library, and then those assets are used in other files. You must open that original library file and delete the unwanted components there. Just keep in mind that this will make them unavailable across all the XD files using thay library, not just the file you're working in!
