I created a very simple combined object of a cube, cone, and text. I added them all to a parent under the text object.

Now, when I try to clear the parent, I can clear it for the cube and cone, but I can't clear the parent for the text.

Here is a screenshot. You can see the text is still under the combined parent: enter image description here

Any ideas what is happening?

    $\begingroup$ It doesn't look parented to anything $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Aren't you confusing the text data with the text object? The object contains the data. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @L0Lock is totally right. If your text would be parent to anything, it wouldn't be seen under Scene Collection, but under Cone or cube like this: [1]: i.sstatic.net/dMq2C.png, but maybe just share your blend file so we don't have to guess what you did... ;) $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Chris I am definitely misunderstanding something. I assumed Blender would create a new parent object, but that is not what is happening. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Chris, your comment illustrated my misunderstanding most clearly. If you want to post it as an answer, I will accept it. $\endgroup$

If an object is parented to another, the outliner will show the object in the hierarchy like so:
