You might try going back into device manager and uninstalling them one more time, then reboot, let them install, and see if they still show up.

I'm saying that because I don't know what state they're really in since I think you've gone in there and disabled, uninstalled, disabled again.

Absolutely perfectly normal. That's how its supposed to work.
What if you later decided to use that device?

Well... They'll show up again in explorer unless you enable that 'Hide empty drives and folders' option.
And i think you didn't get the point of my previous point. There's no problem if you disable that and you see them listed in device manager. You can re-enable them when you need them.
