I am referring to camo that you buy (not rent) with credits, gold or a certificate.  I assumed that either the value of the camo would be included in the sale price offered by WG, or that the camo would be automatically removed and could be reused for free on another tank (perhaps with some restrictions, such as it must be for the same tier tank etc).  However, neither of these things seems to be the case.  I have tested this by getting the sale price with the camo installed and uninstalled; the price offered by WG doesn't change.  I have also sold a tank after removing the camo, but cannot reuse it for free on another tank (I tried to reuse it on a tank in the same tier and country).

Falling down? No, just passing quickly into an area of slower time.

Thanks.  It seems a funny way of doing it, because a sold tank is one you don't want so won't re-purchase.  But it has to be said that I have re-purchased tanks I sold previously!  They did come with all the equipment and ammo I had purchased before selling, but I have not noticed the camo.

For camos a purchase is more like unlocking. And since 5.5 selling tanks is not a good idea.

you get only half the price back so if you sell a tier 5, youll get around 215k back

That's a bit like going to a pawn shop (not that I have ever done that to be fair)!

WG sandblasts it, chops all upgraded components, strips modules and resells it full price to the next n00b in line...
