    I don't know, if this is the intended behaviour (I can't believe it),

No, it isn't.  The general idea was that it should not be necessary to
specify any of those filenames.  We didn't realize about the
texmf-config vs. texmf-var confusion.  We're still considering the
various possible changes.

    $ tlmgr generate updmap \
         --localcfg .../texmf-local/web2c/updmap-local.cfg

FWIW, I don't believe that --localcfg option is needed.  There was an
error in the documentation, which stated the --localcfg files were found
under TEXFMFSYSVAR by default.  As far as I can tell, the code always
defaulted to finding them in TEXMFLOCAL (which makes much more sense :).
Please let us know if that's not the case.
