Thanks for looking into this!

Here is some more info that you might find helpful:

The refcount_ptr class template is just that, a simple reference
counting pointer. The only instance of the template is found on line
229 in boost/exception/exception.hpp:

refcount_ptr<exception_detail::error_info_container> data_;

which is a member of boost::exception. The error_info_container type
is abstract and it is defined in the same header file.

There are friends of boost::exception that refer to data_, in
exception/get_error_info.hpp, exception/info.hpp, and

The only thing that calls ~refcount_ptr() is the destructor of class
boost::exception, which is pure virtual.
