Do you mean:

  I have a contact on my carddav server.

  in linphone, I somehow add a sip address to it

  I remove linphone

  The entire contact is removed?  Or the sip address is removed?

Why does this behavior make sense?  Just because a contact entry was
made or modified by an app does not mean it should be removed when the
app is gone.  Consider someone using one mail client, storing email
addresses, and using a different client.

Which mode is this?  I flipped through settings in linhphone android
(from f-droid) and cannot figure it out.

Do you mean that the contact database has a sip field, but that
some/most contact display applications don't show it, and thus it's hard
to deal with?

Thank you very much for participating in the list.   I think it makes a
huge difference, and I hope comments from the community lead to
improvements in linphone, for both open source users and for your
proprietary license customers.
