Another approach could be to do a backup of the database at install time, then at uninstall restore the backup. Huge caveat is that any user added data will be lost.
Normally my experience is that once an database is installed it’s left in place, upgraded by patched and not removed when uninstall - unless there’s a specific UI option to facilitate dropping the database.
