Asus Zenfone has stock android without bloatware .. why this thread is created ??
Agreed that we have near stock android and most of the apps can be disabled in settings.
But with the method mentioned below, app will never wake up to consume battery and will be uninstalled for current user.
Also ADB is way faster than individually selecting and disabling apps.
You need to enable USB debugging and have ADB setup. (Refer https://www.xda-developers.com/quickly-install-adb/ is you are new to these things.)
Now once you have device connected via USB, run adb devices command to see if your device is connected via ADB.
Adb

Now copy and run the commands from below list for the app which you want to remove.
This will remove apps for current user and will return in case of factory reset. So if you mess something up, do factory reset to get out of trouble.

No issues in OTA, this is basically removing apps for current user.
We are not tampering the system in any way

Can you please tell me why there are 4 different codes for Facebook? What each one exactly does? Also do we need to reboot the phone to see the changes?

No reboot needed. You can see the changes in drawer & under All apps.

Facebook app description is added in OP.

You have main Facebook app, fb messenger, app manager and app installer.
The manager and installer is just companion apps to update facebook app .. read more here.
