When you go to package your project, there is an option within the 'Packaging' section within 'Project Settings' called, 'Directories to never cook' which will exclude any assets within that specific directory from being included in your cooked and packaged build.
There is also a feature request currently entered to allow users to select specific assets to exclude from their packaged projects as well (UE-29585). I will add your questions as community interest to the feature request to try and get this feature improved.
If you have further questions or need additional assistance, please let me know.

Agreed. Almost every IDE has a "Clean" button which does exactly that.
This is not a difficult concept. Scan all the code for referenced assets, compare it against what exists in the Content folder, then remove it.
That's like 250 lines of code max and really would be important, especially when you have thousands of animations that have been duplicated many times.
