Syncing uBlock Origin (addon) data, and Sync between Mobile and Linux in general?

I have "sync: addons" enabled in my sync settings (on all relevant devices).

1. Neither uBlock Origin nor its settings appeared on my Android tablet (I can't recall if this worked on my other computer, but I'm 90% sure it did). Does this not work for syncing between mobile and Linux browsers (two Ubuntu machines)?

2. I tried using uBlock Origin's "Enable cloud storage support" (https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/wiki/Cloud-storage) to move my site whitelist, but it appears to have a different bucket across my Linux and Android devices. I turned it off again after attempting to sync both (Firefox sync) and then get uBlock Origin to read its settings from there.

3. Now that I've migrated my settings manually, I no longer need the cloud sync data from uBlock Origin. Unfortunately, there's no apparent setting in my browser's (either Ubuntu or Android) Account menu to view or edit synced data. Is some amount of unnecessary data now floating there forever, unable to be accessed?

4. If there IS a method to view the contents of sync, how do I find it? Back when I used Chrome, it had a nasty habit of duplicating stuff at the server and occasionally pushing it back to duplicate all my bookmarks. I'd like to see what I've got stored and what (if any) storage quota I'm near. I have an absurd amount of stuff I need to keep synchronized between machines and I'd like warning if I'm using it inefficiently (see: undeletable data from that addon, small though it is) or if there are duplicate entries.
