Here is an example. I do not have the Facebook for Android application install on my current device or any other device. Why does it continue to say I have it installed? Is there a way to re-sync Google Play?
- Nexus 6
- Android 7.0

Any app that you have installed ( including the ones you subsequently uninstalled ) will always show up when you sign in with the account you used to install

When you uninstall an app, it still STAYS on your app list. That's done so you can find it again or install it on another device easily. This can be very helpful to keep a list of apps you like but don't want on your phone all the time (like tools you only use a couple of times a year)
So re- sync will not help. Only way to not see that app is to sign in with a different account and use that account on your phone to install only those apps which you wish to see. Obvious disadvantage of doing this is you cannot access apps which you have previously paid for using a different account - see How to transfer my purchased apps to another account
