Yep, every setting you can change in the radio is stored in the image
with the memories. On Icom, Kenwood (and some other) radios, it would be
possible to do a download, merge, upload operation to get closer to what
you want. However, Yaesu radios would require a lot of button pushing by
the operator to make that work since they are not as sophisticated. That
means it'd be hard to implement in a way that would make everyone happy.

Select all, right click, delete all should do it, right?

And, of course, if they are all the same model, you'd not do the import
each time, but rather blow the same image into every radio, which should
go pretty fast.
