It can be auto-added or cached somewhere else. (Unintended
pun: 'cache' is from the French word not to store but
to HIDE something.)

Well, that whole situation of adding/removing servers several
ways, and how the methods don't auto-sync, that was discussed
a while back.

Get around the situation by not adding them interactively,
always use .gnus, which is better anyway so no harm to it.

But to try to help you, what I'd do is delete everything
everyway you can and everywhere; kill Emacs; re-bytecompile
everything; start Emacs and see if anything is left; if not,
add it again, but only the stuff you want, and only one time,
in .gnus.

[Side note: Gnus, and Emacs in general, don't care where you
put configuration/extension as long as you tell Emacs where it
is and that it should be evaluated. Because: .gnus is, as
everything else, just a file with data. I, for one, don't even
have a .gnus, instead, I have all Gnus here:

and I load every file there explicitely from .emacs]
