I think that remaining does nothing for actual circuit but if it change bias/operating point it might cause something. Amplifiers are known to be wetted by bar liquids and puke and still keep operating
I don’t know. That nearest valve socket that received the most guts still looks pretty rough. If blasting it with the appropriate cleaner and/or compressed air doesn’t do it, I think I would be tempted to desolder and deep clean that one. It might not take as long as you think.
