I had been reading http://tug.org/texlive/doc/tlmgr.html and
wanted to try a few things. (on my pretest installation)

All packages (corresponding to LaTeX macro packages)
which I tried returned relocatable: Yes. 

I tried a few more this morning: hyperref babel newtx framed
kpfonts mathdesign newtxtt tabulary and all returned 
   relocatable: Yes
apart from newtx

Thus relocatable means "user-mode-installable" ?

It also helped me clarify to myself that I had been entertaining 
in my mind a confusion between "packages for TeX Live repos"
and "(generally) packages as bundled macro style files"

For example "tlmgr info newtxmath", or "tlmgr info tabularx"
both fail because those are indeed LaTeX packages, but they
are bundled into bigger things for TeX Live installation.

I do not see in the doc of tlmgr an action which given 
say foo.sty would return the corresponding TeXLive package ?

tlmgr which etoc      ->  
    "TeX Live package etoc"
tlmgr which tabularx   ->  
    "No TL package "tabularx". Perhaps you meant tabularx.sty ?
     Try out TeX Live package tools"
tlmgr which newtxmath ->  
    "No TL package with this name, but perhaps you will be interested
     in TL package newtx? indeed, among the 1878 run files installed
     with it, I could recognize newtxmath.sty"
