Firefox syncs old password

I have Firefox on my desktop (Linux) which has all my saved passwords. Previously I've set up Firefox Sync for Android (browser and Lockwise), but as it has turned out, the password sync doesn't work, newly updated passwords won't get synced. I've delete my Firefox Account and deleted all data from the mobile apps. Created a new account and set up sync again and I still can see my old passwords on the mobile apps (browser and Lockwise). So where are they coming from? What can I do to sync my current passwords?

Maybe helps: if I change an existing password, it syncs correctly, but there are still logins with old passwords, which were changed before the sync was set up. How could this happen? Where does this information comes from?

If you still have those user credentials on a device, they will continue to be synced.
