I get 

$ tlmgr pdftex paper --list

$ echo "$?"

I didn't clarify that I have already switched to the pre-test.

I have 

$ kpsewhich --all pdftexconfig.tex

and the file pdftexconfig.tex uses TeX macros to read pdftexconfig.dat

For some reason I have in /usr/local/texlive/2016/texmf-dist

a TLPaper Perl module which seems fitted to TL2015, not TL2016.
