As in the following: https://i.stack.imgur.com/wOl4C.png

Some people on there appear out of nowhere, ones I have contacted years ago once through my associated Gmail address. I'm assuming I'm appearing on their wall(?) as well.

Is there a setting that controls whether or not I want to be on such a "suggested contacts" list?

There is just a possibility to untick the "Help others to find my profile in search". That hides your profile also from these lists.

Or remove those people from your Gmail "Other contacts".
