Clearing cache, history, session, saved passwords

  • New user. Opera 49.0.2725.47, W10 64 bit.

    I have privacy settings set to what I consider the maximum. Always use privacy mode.

    When I clear browsing data, checking ALL boxes, then exit opera, then open CCleaner, I find the following:
    Opera Internet Cache,
    Opera Internet History,
    Opera Session, and
    Opera Saved Passwords, as entries to be deleted!

    Indeed, if I clear all of these using CCleaner, then open OPERA (automatically to my StartPage home page in privacy mode), then immediately close Opera, CCleaner shows me:
    Opera Internet Cache of 11,178 kb (several files),
    Opera Internet History of 189 kb (several files), and
    Opera Saved Passwords of 18 kb (1 file)

    I am annoyed.

    Is there: 1. any justifiable reason that Opera saves these files, when I specifically tell it to clear them, and 2. any setting/add-on, etc,. for me to get the result I want?
