Its not deleteing S3 bucket even if its empty,i don't see any aws document which refers the default behaviour of S3 is retain
You are correct, the default behaviour is listed as 'delete' if there is no retention policy specified and the objects stack is removed. It might be possible that when the object was created a policy was specified? Also, it would be helpful to see some changelog of the CF template from the object creation to the current iteration to know if there was ever a policy applied that indicates that it should be retained.
