It's perfectly possible to force a rebuild.
In fact, you can force rebuilds in mdadm in situations where no firmware raid
will ever let you.
If you don't know how, that's a you problem not an mdadm problem.

I know how and issue the right command. It say /dev/sdb3 or whatnot
DOES NOT EXSIST.

But if you do ll /dev/sdb3 or even cat /dev/sdb3 the device is obviously there.

So yes mdadm is crap and should never be used. If you need to do mdadm
/dev/md0 --fail /dev/sdb3 and it say sdb3 do not exist there is a
serious issues of the developers piping their toilets into their code.
