When you resign from the church, and want to have your records removed, I was told that your records are still maintained and "held" for when you decide to rejoin the fold.
I found this out by talking to my local bishop, who referred me to the stake president who confirmed this.
Then when you get your life straight, and resolve your sins, you may be re-baptized and all your priesthood and temple work is restored like you never left.
The only way that could happen is that they maintain your records, and just add an annotation that you are an apostate.
When you join the LDS church... you never REALLY leave... they keep your records forever... awaiting for your faithful return.
