It is. I have done this on a few occasions and remarkably, they return. :banghead:

I just deal with it for now.

I think I know what your problem is.
1. Go to settings and turn off contact sync.
2. Go to Google.com/contacts and delete EVERYTHING.
3. Use go contacts to delete duplicates.
4. Turn on sync again.
Done!

Believe it or not, that thought occurred to me when I was writing the reply. Sometimes I'm just too lazy to do it.

That's true, but believe it or not, I've had this issue for at least two years so as you can tell, it's not a high priority. Plus I have done this a few times in the past. I've heard that the best place to do it is on the website, but that way is a lot harder than what has been suggested here.

I am telling you to delete all the contacts from a PC. Just select all and press delete. And go contacts is pretty easy too. The full process will take like 15 minutes, that's all.
