Those memories are released when the program terminated.
I think it is just a waste of the time to free the memory
pieces which are not used(and allocated) repeatedly.
Or, is there any chance to call this part directly from
other command?

Most of the functionality has a destructor to clean up memory allocations. probe code needs to follow suit.

e.g, from builtin-record.c:

err = __cmd_record(&record, argc, argv);


and __cmd_record ends by cleaning up the session struct.
