I sync my contacts between my iPhone 4 and MacBook. In the contacts app on the iPhone I go to groups and have all from my mac selected and it has 50 more contacts than my MacBooks Address Book app.
Some of the contacts are duplicates and some are one that I've deleted. So I exported a backup up my contacts to the desktop and deleted everything out of the address book and re-synced it with my iPhone and now it only shows those additional 50 contacts on my phone.

Anyone know where these are stored and how to get rid of them?

I think I solved the problem. I went through and deleted each contact off my phone. And then re-imported the the Address Book backup and re-synced that with my iPhone and those extra 50 contacts are no longer there. Hopefully they won't reappear somehow.
