I see the same thing using a fairly recent R-devel:

> setGeneric("foobar", function(x) standardGeneric("foobar"))
[1] "foobar"

> removeGeneric("foobar")
[1] TRUE

> getGeneric("foobar")
standardGeneric for "foobar" defined from package ".GlobalEnv"

function (x) 
<environment: 0x5fd6d6c>
Methods may be defined for arguments: x
