Created a new secure application role in OBIEE 11g via Fusion Middleware Enterprise Manager (EM) page -> under coreapplication -> secure application role -> new "Oracle Support Role".
Then restarted all services.

Then opened OBIEE Admin Tool -> Security Manager -> Application Roles and confirmed the new "Oracle Support Role" is present.
Exit OBIEE Admin tool.

Then logged back in to WLS/EM console and navigated to secure applications -> removed "Oracle Support Role" role and then restarted services.

Logged back in to OBIEE Admin tool and opened RPD in online mode.
"Oracle Support Role" is not removed from the RPD file.

The steps used to add and remove the application role are those described in "2.5 Managing Application Roles and Application Policies Using Fusion Middleware Control" in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Security Guide for Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition 11g Release 1 (11.1.1). 

Why is the deleted application role still showing in the RPD file, if it was deleted from the policy store via EM?
