Android Install referral tracking uniqueness

I implemented install referral tracking in my app from:

but referrer attribute is getting broadcasted by the Play Store to my app after every repeated install(uninstall and install on same device).

for a quick test install this app from play store(not mine) from this link:

you will get referral value = "myReferrerValue" on every first launch of repeated install(uninstall and install on same device).

my question is: 1. Is play store send referral broadcast even app gets install on same device repeated times? 2. Is it not suppose to broadcast referral only when there is unique install(once per new device) ?
