You're not exiting the client; there is no client to exit.

In principle, the client simply sends a message to the server to open
a window for you, then exits.  (I forget what can happen in case of a
TTY client -- it may have to remain to keep a pipe open, but that's
all it does.  The principle is the same: you're editing in the server,
not in the client.)  I.e., C-x C-c is supposed to shut down the server

You should be able to close the frame with C-x 5 0 or via the window
