I only now thought of testing with a MWE that doesn't use the offending 
new option, and this reveals:

    $ lualatex ly-version.tex
    This is LuaTeX, Version 1.07.0 (TeX Live 2018/Debian)
      restricted system commands enabled.
    LaTeX2e <2018-04-01> patch level 4
    (using write cache:
    sing read cache: /var/lib/texmf/luatex-cache/generic
    luaotfload | main : initialization completed in 0.322 seconds
    Babel <3.20> and hyphenation patterns for 1 language(s) loaded.
    Document Class: scrartcl 2018/03/30 v3.25 KOMA-Script document class

So this confirms that lualatex finds the package in /usr/share/texlive 
rather than that in ~/texmf. (While still kpsewhich finds the one 
installed in $TEXMFHOME).

Anything I have to update or can do to investigate?
