The keys stay with the position, not with the person. An elder's quorum
president, once released, is an elder. Same with a stake president being
a high priest.
However, a bishop remains a bishop, just without the active keys. It is
not just a position, but an office in the priesthood. And I've done some
research and determined that those who mentioned previously that it is a
position in the Aaronic Priesthood are partially incorrect. That only
applies to direct descendants of Aaron, who have a right to it due to
lineage. Those who receive it otherwise (not of Aaron's lineage), receive
it as an office in the Melchizedek Priesthood.
