[tex-live] instopt_letter seems not to work

I install TL using a ready-made profile. This profile contains the line
which, if I understand properly, is supposed to cause the default
papersize to be "letter".
However, it doesn't actually cause this to be the case if the profile also
contains the line:
I say this because after installing with this profile, and then manually
doing "tlmgr install scheme-minimal", a call of "tlmgr paper" shows all
four paper size reports as being A4.
Perhaps this is because until the scheme-minimal is installed, there is no
way to change paper settings yet---I don't know, as I'm no TeXpert. But
then shouldn't e.g. "tlmgr install scheme-minimal" consult the *created*
$TEXLIVE/tlmgr/texlive.profile for the presence of "instopt_letter 1", and
if found, automatically change the paper size to "letter"?
