You can have a local Git branch that has been pushed (the question suggests that a local branch is the same as an unpushed one).

This article provides a nice explanation about removing a local branch. This can be either unpushed or pushed, merged or not.

Perhaps "local" was meant to mean "only exists locally"?

Yes that's it. Probably one can delete any branch like this, but that's beyond this question.
