There is no such tlmgr option: tlmgr never touches TEXMFLOCAL.

However, backups of TeX Live packages are simple tar archives. It should be easy
enough to just untar the backup file in TEXMFLOCAL, then delete the tlpkg
directory. (At least, this is for packages which lived in only one tree.
Packages with files in both TEXMFMAIN and TEXMFDIST are more complicated.)

Please let us know if it worked or if you have additional questions.
