If only it could! It's just the way macOS apps install/uninstall was designed.

 

If you uninstall an app by dragging it to the trash it also leaves behind :

  • caches files in ~Library/Caches
  • preferences files in ~Library/Preferences
  • log files in ~Library/Logs
  • Other files in
    • ~Library/Containers
    • ~Library/Cookies
    • ~Library/Address Book Plug-Ins
    • ~Library/Saved Application State
    • ~private/var/db/BootCaches

 

To completely uninstall an app you can use software such as AppCleaner
