We have two record types A and B on Opportunity object with completely different sales processes i.e. none of the values in the field called Stage are same.

Now, if we delete a record type say A of Opportunity object (and we know that deleting a record type does not result in deletion of its related records), and at the time of deletion of record type A, we are replacing it with record type B. In other words, record type B, which has a completely different sales process than record type A, will store its data. I have tried it and record type B is storing the records of A. But how is that possible if both the stages are completely different?

Stage is just picklist field, recordtype field is also like fields can be assigned to any record independently of picklist fields ans sales process. Any value can be assigned to picklist fields from backend or through process unless it is restricted picklist. Sales process is just a way to implement business process so that end user can be guided on UI.
