I asked myself the same question a couple years ago. Although just as in the way a band or label for that matter would have the tape returned to them at some point, I gave the entire firewire drive to the group, although I charged them for the price of a new drive as well seeing as how it happened to be mine. Those sessions had the plugins and automation included in the session files, and whether or not they had the plugins to recall it wasn't my problem.

However, if you were worried in the case that they would have your plugs and you dont want to give away your gear as it were, I'd recommend you make mix stems and give them the processed individual tracks in a new session, plugin free. This is more or less what I do these days, and it also makes for a quick recall later if they just wanted a slight change, like a 2dB boost on the vocals.
