how to clean package files after uninstalling it [SOLVED]

I installed the open source variant of vscode from pacman, and after uninstalling it, I deleted the files in .config that belong to the package, when I installed it back, to test it, the extensions I have installed in it still showed up, that is to say, some files are not being removed.

command I used to uninstall it:
sudo pacman -R code

also tried:
sudo pacman -Rn code

The files a program creates in your $HOME, pacman doesn't touch it. So you need to manually delete the files, if you want.

And for the extensions, this page says is on $HOME/.vscode/extensions
In my case, I installed VS Codium and I have ~/.vscode-oss
