Mobile sync adds a piece of old content to every empty note

Steps to reproduce

  1. Install the mobile app
  2. Activate sync

Expected result

All the files are synced
There are no updates to the files after a full sync

Actual result

A piece of old content is added to every empty note (a created note with no content, even without newlines).
After creating a new note in mobile, the same bit of content is added to it after a pause (seems like at the time the sync fires).
The content that gets added is a couple of tags I used previously for an embedded query in one of the notes.
