And of course it was right there in the docs:

*Remove music from your library.*

*This command uses the same query 
<> syntax as 
the list command. You’ll be shown a list of the files that will be removed 
and asked to confirm. By default, this just removes entries from the 
library database; it doesn’t touch the files on disk. To actually delete 
the files, use beet remove -d. If you do not want to be prompted to remove 
the files, use beet remove -f.*
