Huh. I have tons of apps with a greyed out uninstall buttons and no deactivate button! There are apps with a deactivate button, but they often have cryptic names and I don't know whether I can deactivate them or what they are for.

Hm... haven't seen that before. You are right - when you go to "All" instead of "Downloaded". These are the ones like com.android.sharedstoragebackup or "Fused Location". If the names are cryptic and you don't know what they do I think they are probably system relevant apps and better be left alone...
