a) What you probably refer to is that shells may send SIGHUP to it's
childprocesses, which bash does not per default. (huponexit=off)

b) Even if it would be on, it would just send SIGHUP but neither SIGKILL
(as you stated) or SIGTERM, etc.

Just try it with another application, e.g. 
$ xman & exit

I observe, that xman stays open, but the shell exits.

I guess there most be some other error here.

E.g. when starting josm like that:

$ josm > /dev/null 2> /dev/null & exit

It starts normally (while the shell/terminal are closed.).
