Take a look at

Merging merely creates a patch from the root of the branch (if you
tagged it!) to the head of the branch and applies it to your target
(which can be HEAD). So there is no real connection between branch tip
and trunk. The changes nevertheless afterwards are part of trunk. In
this paradigm you create branches and leave them after finishing the
feature and merged the changes to trunk.
