You're applying the command "no ip ftp server" in your command copy-paste example but state in the narrative that you're applying "ip ftp server".
Are you trying to enable or disable FTP on the device?
This command allows the device to send files by FTP, for example to configure a phone or download to a backup server.
If you are just trying to pull files from an external FTP server to the Adtran then you don't need FTP server running.
Specifically what are you trying to accomplish?
My bad, it should have read "no p ftp server". I am trying to disable the ftp server for security reasons.

Does the device listen on TCP 21? (Is there actually an FTP server running?)
Try the more specific no ip ftp server default-filesystem flash and see if that removes it.
Some of the default configuration lines that are there do nothing unless enabled by another command and will just be cosmetic unless enabled. Another example:
auto-config authname adtran encrypted password 2e281c6133856db572ab92d4ad8ddb4dbeae
Try to get rid of the "auto-config authname adtran..." line. You can't. But it doesn't do anything unless you turn on auto-config. Same situation likely exists with the FTP server.
