I looked at what is in bibtex.universal-darwin via the `Get Info' command in TeX Live Utility (I assume it looks into the tlmgr database) and it appears that only some doc files are part of that ``package.'' So it isn't clear to me that there really was a binary update.

It would definitely be interesting to know if there really was a binary update via tlmgr. I remember seeing several asymptote updates. 

$ ls -al /usr/texbin/asy
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  13177648 Oct  3  2009 /usr/texbin/asy

and the tlmgr.log has the latest update to asymptote.universal-darwin as

[Wed Mar 10 07:40:39 2010] update: asymptote.universal-darwin (16044 -> 17389)

finally running

$ asy --version
Asymptote version 1.88 [(C) 2004 Andy Hammerlindl, John C. Bowman, Tom Prince]

so it's the 1.88 version.

Good Luck,
