I don't want to start a rant, but you can use the following workaround:
1. cp /etc/xdg/autostart/tracker-* to ~/.config/autostart/
2. Edit each copied tracker desktop file:
change: X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=true to
3. Open System Settings -> Startup and Shutdown (-> Autostart)
4. Unckeck all tracker Desktop Files
Now the tracker is diabled, it will not be started.
Hope this helps for the time being.
