Looks good to me, just a few suggestions for further improvements.

I like the helper. I think the second sentence above is not needed
though, as that's true for most helper functions ;)

IMHO the point is that we have to keep calling vdisk_free() for PBS and
external plugins in the API call. If archive_remove() were designed to
call plugins, I'd argue that the side effects would be intended.
Usually, the plugin knows best what to do.

Nit: Could use PVE::Storage::Plugin::NOTES_EXT

Not new, but this could be improved by using
  unlink $archive_path or $! == ENOENT or die "..."
like we do in other places. That would gracefully handle the case where
two operations raced, e.g. pruning and manual removal. Previously, one
of them would fail, because the file was already gone. Please make that
its own patch if you go for it, thanks!

Style nit: The rest could be turned into a loop to avoid code repetition
like:

    for my $type (qw(log notes)) {
        my $fn = $archive_info->{"${type}filename"} or next;
        my $path = ...

Same here with ENOENT

and here.
