It's perfectly possible to force a rebuild.
In fact, you can force rebuilds in mdadm in situations where no firmware raid

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.

Wrong. (Unless you can supply enough exact commands and responses and other observations to prove your diagnostic process and deductions aren't full of holes. You have not done so above.)

He did, you know:

But he did not wait enough for answers or did not apply them, and reinstalled, blaming mdadm.
