My understanding is the members of the Second Quorum of the Seventies are called from 3-5 years. At least that is what the church publishes.
From the Oct. 1996 General Conference "The Sustaining of Church Officers":
"With gratitude for their service as General Authorities, we extend an honorable release to Elders W. Mack Lawrence, Rulon G. Craven, Joseph C. Muren, Graham W. Doxey, Jorge A. Rojas, Julio E. Dávila, Han In Sang, Stephen D. Nadauld, and Sam K. Shimabukuro as members of the Second Quorum of the Seventy. Those who wish to join in an expression of appreciation, please indicate by the uplifted hand."
I picked Jospeh C. Muren at random and checked his term of service--5 years. So, it appears Davila was released in the usual way, at least publicly.
