This differs some per charger and even per brand.
On DC fastchargers after you started with an RFID card, you press your RFID card to the charger again and select stop on the display.
On regular chargers after you started with an RFID card, you press your RFID card to the charger again and the chargepoint switches off and unlocks your cable for you to pull it out.
On free chargers you press unlock from your car. The onboard charger pauses the charging and unlocks the cable for a few moments. You can confirm this by the sound the mechanism makes and also by the blinking of the charging indicator leds on the dash. If not pulled out it will re-lock and continue charging.
The only thing that counts is that when you pull the cable out, the charging current better be switched off to prolong the lifetime of the connector because of electrical sparks. In an emergency no problem, the connector is made to endure this lots of times under full load.
