This would be controlled by the contents of the 'rmcup' terminfo
variable. On my machine, where less and vim restore the original screen
contents on exit:

    $ echo $TERM
    $ infocmp -1 | grep rmcup

If vim and rfk don't clear the screen on exit, then I'd wager your
distro sets rmcup differently, or not at all (less can be configured to
ignore smcup/rmcup with the -X parameter).
