Retransmissions of FIN Packets in cases where the ACK sent in response was lost on the way. A TCP connection is practically dead if after two times the maximum segment lifetime no packet was transmitted. Linux handles this this internally and return fast after close and allocates a new TCB for the next connection. RIOT can't do this since everything is statically allocated. Thats why close/disconnect has to wait until the used TCB is reusable again. If you want more details look for TIME-WAIT in the TCP RFC.

TCP connection teardown is pretty complicated
