systemctl list-unit-files | grep -i evolution
This will tell you what the name of any service involved is, with -i
adjusting for the fact that the service name may or may not use a
capital letter. Then, you can disable it, or if you really want to use
the Big Hammer, mask it.
These processes are generally part of the evolution-data-server package
and despite the name are not limited to Evolution. They provide various
services such as calendars and alarms via d-bus to Gnome sessions. For
example evolution-alarm-notify is configured in /etc/xdg/autostart.
