They are a part of the story. Deal with it.

And I also, at no point, have questioned the use of databooks as background information. My original question was whether all the timeline related plot holes originated from the databook, or if I had perhaps missed something in the manga.
I'll answer this. Yes, the timeline plot holes originate from the databook. They also originate from the story itself. It's because of the databooks that we know when Obito/Rin/etc graduated and became Chuunin and their ages. The manga had Kakashi state that he became a Chuunin at 6.

It was not intended as an attack against the databooks. Which is also why I wanted to explain my comment about them.
You dismissed the databooks completely because you haven't read them, even when they provide information that is pertinent to the story.
