Do permissions actually work in giving us control?

I look and look and look, but nothing! If an app requests a certain permission I KNOW is unnecessary for the app to work correctly and turn it off, 80% chance the app will refuse to continue and instead keep saying that you need to give it permission.

Do we have control if we tell one app, "no, you cant have my permission to get my location so that I can look at wallpapers!" If the app refuses to let us see wallpapers because we wont give it those priviledges? Does a wallpaper app really need system permissions? Does it really need access to my contacts so I can view pictures?

If you look for an answer to how to deny an app permissions while still being able to use the app, you will only find how to turn off the permission and not how to keep the app running without those permissions. Do you think you have propper controll of your game counsel if the manafacturer can force it to deny you being able to play your games? So app permissions does not give us full controll.

My Question is this, How can I give an app suedo permissions that make it think it has access to those attributes when it doesnt. Kinda like a sandbox. Or is there a way to modify the apk to remove the permissions check of the apps? TY
