What is your nationality?

You seem to need a long-term visa for Belgium. As long as this is valid, no problems at all. Your residence permit is not a travel document anyway.

Of course, if you're not flying, nobody will check...

I have been in the same situation couple of years ago and was returning to BXL by plane on the last day of residence permit. No problems, though the guy at boaring had big eyes that it is expiring.
You can safely return on the last day of its validity even with the plane.
