Try the following little three-part experiment.  In each part, the last 
step tells you what Mathematica now knows about the symbol f.

    f[x_] := Plot[x, {x, 0, 1}]
    SetAttributes[f, Listable]
    Clear[f]
    ??f

    f[x_] := Plot[x, {x, 0, 1}]
    SetAttributes[f, Listable]
    ClearAll[f]
    ??f

    f[x_] := Plot[x, {x, 0, 1}]
    SetAttributes[f, Listable]
    Remove[f]
    ??f
