Default New options in settings sync (google account)

Hi!

I've noticed new options when I enter settings and select my google account (sync details).




Do you know what are these? Weird is that there are "*" in some titles. Do you know what are these with star? Do you know what exactly does it sync? Do you know why there are 2 exact same positions? Don't know why one of these options is in english while rest is in Polish. Is everything OK or maybe I should wipe data (I dirty flashed when coming from 4.4.2 to 4.4.3)

Thanks in advance

These are supposedly hidden sync points. Have you installed Greenify?. Greenify Experimental version enables/displays these 'hidden' ones - so you can chose to enable/disable sync on them.

Yes, I installed greenify but never would guess this is because of greenify. Thanks for help

Can anyone say what exactly does that sync mean:
- Location and location something
- Google Play services
- Push subscription

I was curious about these too. And also why there are 2 "Game Data" options

Also, I unticked a bunch of them (i.e. Push Subscriptions, Google Photos, etc.)
But notice that they get reticked (upon reboot, I think)
