V19.07.7: build of gstreamer-plugins fails, however I told it NOT to build gstreamer-plugins

Like the title says. I am trying to build an image for a device, and it fails while trying to build gstreamer-plugins. However I specifically told it in menuconfig not to build gstreamer-plugins or anything related to them. I went with a fine comb through all of the options in menuconfig and deselected everything related to that. And yet it is still trying to build gstreamer-plugins. Why?
