This comment from Eric, do explain what happens:
I do know that most outstanding references when you clean up a
container get moved to the loopback device. So it may not originally
be the loopback device itself where the reference counting is wrong.

I have got some wise words from Eric,
i.e. moved all ipvs register/unregister from subsys to device
that solved plenty of my issues
I'll will post a Patch later on regarding this.
