At the moment (Wed Feb 26 13:35:12 UTC 2020) all of my machines, upon running 

tlmgr update --self --all


tlmgr: package repository (verified)
tlmgr: saving backups to /root/texlive/2019/tlpkg/backups                                                 
tlmgr: skipping forcibly removed package: stringenc

Is this by design?
