Now what this has to do with a Google profile defies my imagination, but
perhaps it's my comprehension that's faulty.

If you log into your GMail acct, go to your contacts and look for a group 
called "Starred on Android", this is the group that gets sync'd to your 
device and back to GMail. All of your contacts on your phone will get put 
into this group, GMail will also attempt to guess what contacts you use 
the most and star them for you as well. I have to go back into that group 
and un-star quite a few contacts because GMail has needlessly starred
