It does happen, and there are some annoying Flash ads.

Some people do uninstall the plugin.

But the /very very/ vast majority don't. Even those who care enough
about their experience etc to use Firefox.

And of that subset who dislike Flash, you'll find that a lot won't
uninstall the plug in, they'll run an extension to block 3rd party flash.

I'd estimate the number of people who did as being less than .1%
