Using gnome software to install an application - removal of that package leaves behind dependencies

Installing an application with ubuntu software centre only leaves behind config files (seen in synaptic labelled for complete removal).

After installing and then removing alarm clock with USC -

sudo apt-get autoremove
[sudo] password for wolf:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
0 to upgrade, 0 to newly install, 0 to remove and 1 not to upgrade.

After cleaning up and then reinstalling with gnome software, followed by the removal

sudo apt-get autoremove
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
The following packages will be REMOVED
  libappindicator1 libindicator7
0 to upgrade, 0 to newly install, 2 to remove and 1 not to upgrade.
After this operation, 184 kB disk space will be freed.
