You can leave from other Schengen country. Why not?

I am not sure, before when i had a national Polish visa i had to enter/exit to/from Poland because of the entry and exit stamp at the airport, but after getting the resident card i am not sure if it's still like that.

Do you have some legal text supporting that? Because what's the difference if the exit stamp is from Poland or another Schengen country? They have information how much time you spent in Schengen, otherwise they wouldn't know if someone overstays permitted time.

When did this happen, and more importantly, who told you that?

As of 5 April 2010, holders of national visa (type D) are permitted to travel and stay in any Schengen country for up to 3 month within a half year period, provided some very basic conditions are met (valid travel document, financial means to support themselves, provable reason for travel, no red flag associated with the name within SIS and security agencies). This includes travel for the purpose of transit to and from destination state (in this case Poland).

In parallel, the same conditions apply if you have a valid residence permit. Remember that there are many destinations not connected to Poland via direct flights.

Speaking of red flag; have you travelled to Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon or Turkey recently?
