      :help :mksession says:

      7. Reloads the buffer list, with the last cursor positions. If
      'sessionoptions' contains "buffers" then all buffers are restored,
      including hidden and unloaded buffers. Otherwise only buffers in windows
      are restored.

      So, after reading Tony's response, I expect you could solve this either by removing 'buffers' from your sessionoptions, or by using :bwipe instead of :bd to delete the buffer.
