factory reset... doesn't

  • Having probably been bit by the Blueborne security bug, I'm trying to reset my phone to a known/trusted state. Ubuntu Recovery, factory wipe, then reflash boot/recovery/system.

    User home directory is definitely reset. But mods I made to my root filesystem are still there! Like I added packages to /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages.

    Can somebody give me an idea of where this state is kept, and why a full wipe and reflash doesn't in fact get me back to a day 0 filesystem?
