Can we prevent the caching / backing up of files when an app is uninstalled?

I tried setting: 

android =
{   
   allowBackup = false,
   fullBackupOnly = false
}
in the build.settings file and when I uninstall the app from my Android device the files that I want deleted are being deleted but I think Android is using the 'back up' files.  Which is what the above settings should prevent.
 
Is this possible in Corona?
 
Please see the following docs (Android > version 6)

You might be able to control this yourself in build.settings. See: http://docs.coronalabs.com/guide/distribution/advancedSettings/index.html#android-directives
