    Welcome to Android Central! I moved this from the Android Apps forum to the General Help forum for more specific traffic.

    Some system apps or preinstalled apps are designed to open on their own for various reasons -- perhaps they're essential to the system, or perhaps that's just how the phone manufacturer coded it because the app developer paid them money to have the app active. What apps are you referring to?

    Google apps like play store need to run process again , location, WiFi, etc can disable some permission but some apps might not work properly

    Android is designed to keep memory filled. If you arbitrarily kill apps, the OS will always initiate either those apps or different ones to fill it again. They stay dormant in the background, not using any processing power, but are able to be immediately called up when needed. This helps improve battery life and speeds up multitasking. It's best to not kill off apps arbitrarily, unless you have a specific problem with a rogue app.
