When using the Curse Client to update an existing addon, it does not touch the saved variables. It only updates the addon itself. Just so you know. The Client does have a saved variable cleaner, which scans for orphaned saved variable files, but you have to give it the OK to remove them. You can also use it to delete specific saved variable files, even if the addon is still installed, but again, you have to specifically do this yourself.

When you use the Curse Client to delete an addon, it gives you the option to delete orphaned library files, saved variables, etc. Again, that is your choice; the program is not designed to purposely delete things it should not.

As for your saved variables, did you put them in the correct place? Some go into WTF\Account\YourAccountName\SavedVariables, others go into WTF\Account\YourAccountName\ServerName\CharacterName. The best way to find out is keep your existing WTF copied to somewhere safe, like the Desktop, start the game, do some minor alterations to the settings of any given addon, /reloadui, then browse your hard drive to both those locations. If you see your addon's SV file, replace it with the copy from your Desktop, /reloadui, and you should be fixed.
