I tested this and found out that the UI is deleted from Preferences and Control Centre also. There is only one question before I can mark this as Verified. 

I saw that browser.fastblock.enabled, browser.fastblock.limit and browser.fastblock.timeout are still available in the about:config page. Even if I set browser.fastblock.enabled to true, the UI will not appear. Is it OK that these preferences are not deleted from about:config even if the UI will not appear?

Yes, that's intentional.  The backend code for this feature still exists and is functional, it just won't do anything at the UI level.
