Android is coded by Google, therefore, Google Apps are android you can't uninstall them. You can only uninstall the latest update. Contact Google regarding the preloaded apps on Android.

Re: Bug in Settings of applications.

Hi,

 

When a system application is updated, you will get two versions of it which is the factory version and the version that you updated to. In order to disable an app, the latest version needs to be uninstalled.

 

And since you say that you want to disable an app to save memory, if you could disable an app that is updated, you would basically not save any memory since the app would just be hidden with all its data.
