I had the free version of MyBackup (which is one I know DIDN'T automatically re-download), but it won't let me move stuff from another device unless I go pro... so I can't compare and see what else I might be missing.
What does above bolded mean...where did you tell it to "sync everything"?
Aside from Google email accounts (sync contacts, calendar, emails) I haven't seen any settings to enable/disable sync that I can remember...
BTW - I did find that one app resurfaced on its own on my device. It showed up sometime between yesterday and today. But that's the only one that did that...and a restore that takes several days to occur is not a restore in my book.
