    I have just one question, how does tlmgr determine the arch?

It runs config.guess.

    So on which machines, tlmgr will detect it to be x86_64-darwin

Never.  As Dick has explained (more than once), we felt this would not
be reliable or desirable.  It always "detects" universal-darwin for any
