Autofill data is the type of data that syncs if you connect a Google account to Chrome. If you do not connect a Google account, the data is stored locally. If you delete and reinstall Chrome, the data may still be present. This is because Chrome does not delete or delete the profile folder it creates for you. If you want to delete it completely from your local disk, you need to delete the Chrome profile folders as well.
