The file texmf-dist/web2c/fmtutil.cnf may include the following lines:

   # from csplain:
   csplain pdftex - -etex -enc csplain-utf8.ini
   pdfcsplain pdftex - -etex -enc csplain-utf8.ini
   pdfcsplain xetex - -etex csplain.ini
   pdfcsplain luatex - -etex csplain.ini

Note, that there is nothing about the luaplain.ini mentioned in your log.

I included the luaplain.ini to the csplain package as an experimental code 
last week, but I didn't ask the TeXlive administrator to change the 
configuration lines in the texmf-dist/web2c/fmtutil.cnf. These lines have 
to be in the old state as mentioned above.

The luaplain.ini is experimental because it rely on luaotfload code which 
is under hot development. If I tune it today then it will fail tomorrow 
because the luacode can be changed.

Best regards
