Default Field Mapping
Depending on the other app you're syncing with, you'll see a number of standard RingCentral fields being mapped by default. For instance, in a connection with Google Contacts, the default field mapping looks like this:
Customizable Field Mapping
You can custom map any additional RingCentral fields that aren't included in the default mapping yet. Bear in mind a mapping between two fields can only exist if the types of fields are compatible and the particular compatibility will determine the direction of the mapping as well.

Using just the RingCentral mobile app?
The RC app can just read directly into your phone's database (which is Google, Outlook or iCloud). It includes these contacts in the heading "Personal contacts". By that logic, RingCentral doesn't need its own database populated through a sync with contacts - that would simply not be required.
Incoming RingCentral calls get proper caller-id treatment by scanning through your own phone's database.
Of course make sure you do ensure your phone is properly setup, so that you are certain that the RingCentral app shows the right contacts.
Somewhat confusingly, when you list RingCentral's "personal contacts" in the app, it shows not only your phone's contacts, but also includes whatever contacts you did create inside of RingCentral directly.
That's the reason you do want to keep the other sync rule activated which takes RingCentral contacts and moves them into your other app. This will not only sync all contacts that you previously had added into RingCentral to your other app, moving forward it will also do the same.
When you choose to add a contact (through the call log e.g.) in RingCentral, it gets added as a RingCentral contact only, and that's where this sync will help to move the contact also to the rest of your stack.
