Of course the cache doesn't go away when he uses sync!
Why should it? Its a cache not a buffer.
Instead, it grows and grows...

As others have said, the cache will grow to use all available memory

That is a GOOD THING for a cache to to.

Even when that messes up running app requests for memory? It has been
said that if memory is needed by some app, this cache may get smaller to
accommodate. I am not sure that is the case. When memory use gets big,
some apps die.

Yours sincerely,
