Just tested, It seems the favorite folders are the one's that we see in Nautilus 'bookmarks' menu(obvious) if any folder is removed from that menu it is cleanly removed from the Dash as well. But if you delete any of the bookmarked folders by hand, they are cleanly removed from the 'Bookmarks' menu instantly but they remain in the dash.

(I already have analogs in another partition that I mount as ~/data.) However, these folders (~/Downloads, ~/Documents, ~/Pictures, ~/Videos) show up in the Dash's search results even though the folders don't exist. I see these ghost folders in "Top Results" when searching by invoking the dash, using "Find Files", or using "Files & Folders". I tried clearing my zeitgeist history: rm ~/.local/share/zeitgeist/activity.sqlite zeitgeist-daemon --replace But these folders still show up.
