But for the large zone it does not?

Is it the case that there are multiple authority servers and they are
not in sync (or not immediately for large zones), and that unbound
re-fetches the data, but from a server with still the old data?

Unbound does not flush local-data, if you have configured stuff
especially for this name in the config, then this stays.

Can you reproduce the problem?  Could you do so with verbosity=4 and
(perhaps also logfile: "mydebug.log" because the output is large and may
not be nice and mess up your syslogs), and email me the output (offlist
if large) ?
