Kind of naive - These are the about:config items:
extensions.formautofill.creditCards.enabled
services.sync.engine.creditcards
services.sync.engine.creditcards.available
services.sync.log.logger.engine.creditcards

This last one is particularly worrisome due to logging if failed access, passwords or pins, etc.
