Where the sphere bleeds or squirts LHM after being removed, it is because the diaphragm has a small hole, and the space in the sphere which normally contains only nitrogen now contains a mixture of nitrogen and LHM. When the pressure is released, it takes a while for the nitrogen/LHM mix to be pushed through the hole in the diaphragm until the pressure is equalised.

...only if LHM has managed to get through/past the diaphragm.
You can usually tell if the diaphragm is perforated if you try to re-gas it: pressure will not hold,
