Almost all applications on Mac no matter where they were downloaded from the Internet or Mac AppStore have a similar concern. All of them gather a lot of junk system files outside the app container in the Applications folder. Some of them are really small (1-200kB), but a size of some can reach gigabytes. Here is a small list of apps with such service files. But this is not the biggest problem. Sometimes these service files could change your preferences, show ads and slow down your Mac.
