I use the Apps TC (Tracker Control) and “open in whatsapp” from Fdroid. The first one blocks some tracking domains and also allows you to cut the internet connection totally. The second one allows you to open a contact in whatsapp without giving whatsapp any data except for the phone number. This is necessary because my android version doesn’t support work profiles yet. I think in normal operation all of your contacts will be uploaded to their servers.
To give whatsapp even less data you could try to get a second phone number which you can get rid of after deleting whatsapp. This way it will hopefully be harder for them and others to identify you later.
