The end of the contract is called settelement.

Settlement can be physical or in cash. You need to read the contract specifications to know how the settlement happens at the expiry and when exactly is the expiry.

@Obelixtrader gave you a correct answer for NG
for example on BTC (XBT future) the settlement would be in Cash and not in bitcoins
