There is a mapping in some font map file which maps "Helvetica" to
the "real" font name.
Do you think so? It's possible, but it would be the "aliases" file
rather than a .map file per se (.map files mostly map tfm names to
.pfb/.ttf/.whatever to include). And we removed the aliases file a
couple years ago in TL, though I dunno about other distributions.
My first guess would be that there is a file Helvetica.tfm on the system.
Presence or absence of .afm files is definitely immaterial.
