It is both wrong, and outdated. Modern asio's executor_work_guard has
a member function reset() which releases the work. Probably the
shared_ptr in the examples used to manage the guard were written
before the reset() member was added. But there are other constructs in
that tutorial which are outdated.

I would look to the latest Asio examples and documentation for best
practices. And if you have specific questions don't hesitate to ask on
the list or open an issue in the relevant repository.
