Not shutting down gracefully?

Doing docker-compose stop ... or docker-compose down will stop containers gracefully. However, if you remove services from docker-compose.yml and do docker-compose up -d it seems to shut those services down hard without any time for tear down inside the container. Is this intentional? We have a use case where we want to remove the services but still have them being gracefully shut down. Do we have to invoke docker-compose stop first and then update docker-compose.yml and do docker-compose up -d?

Thanks!
