An out osd still has a crush weight. Removing that osd or weighting it to 0 will change the weight of the host that it's in. That is why data moves again. There is a thread in the ML started by Sage about possible ways to confront the double data shift when drives fail. Data moving of when it goes out and then again when it is removed from the cluster.
If the drive was still readable when it was marked out, the best method is to weight it to 0 while it is still running so it can be used to offload its data. Also in this method, when you remove it from the cluster, there will not be any additional data movement.
