How to keep Gmail Contacts from adding contacts automatically?

Over time as I use Gmail, Google seems to add contacts automatically (not sure if it's only from incoming, outgoing, or both).

What is the trick to disallow this?

I've already gone through and "cleaned up" (deleted) contacts from my Gmail Contacts twice - to only keep ones I want, but the list keeps on getting bigger.

Help!

Gmail contacts lets you create groups, then on your phone you can specify which groups get sync'd.

The following link has a screen shot of this setting page on the phone:
