Description: realtime computer music and graphics system
 Pure Data (also known as Pd) is a real-time graphical programming
 for audio and graphics processing. Pd's audio functions are built-in;
 graphical computations require separate packages such as gem (Graphics
 Environment for Multimedia) or pd-pdp (Pd Packet).
 This is a metapackage that depends on all components of the core of Pd.

If you have removed the package, then maybe the executable is in one of
the dependencies?

$ dpkg -S puredata | grep bin
puredata-core: /usr/lib/puredata/bin
puredata-core: /usr/bin/puredata
puredata-core: /usr/share/puredata/doc/5.reference/otherbinops-help.pd
puredata-core: /usr/lib/puredata/bin/pd-watchdog
puredata-core: /usr/lib/puredata/bin/pd
puredata-gui: /usr/lib/puredata/tcl/pd_bindings.tcl
puredata-core: /usr/share/puredata/doc/5.reference/sigbinops-help.pd
