Rechecked this (multiple times)
Using the GUI at Software & Updates>Additional Drivers appears to now
not remove conf files and hence user is left with 640x480px (assume
because of the blacklist file left in /etc/modprobe.d)
If one installs via apt and then purges - the nvidia conf file is
removed and a normal at reboot results.
The same behaviour is seen if installed via Software & Updates and then
removed with apt purge.
Pretty positive this was not previously the case when using the GUI to
install nvidia driver.
Only have 1 card to test against - so possibly only affects nvidia-340.
Notes from testing and some pastebin of terminal logs attached.

Status in software-properties package in Ubuntu:
Following a successful install and subsequent use of nvidia-340 -
uninstallation of nvidia via Additional Drivers led to a reboot to a
desktop at 640x480 px.
Investigation found an nvidia created file left on the system
blacklisting nouveau, deleted file and rebooted to normal desktop.
Didn't think about ubuntu-reporting this - can try and replicate and
apport-collect if it's of any use.
