just to add what Ulrike said:

In this case you don't have to activate or add this map, but can simply
override it. updmap will use the updmap that is found via "kpsewhich",
that is all.

> So I tried to avoid confusing tlmgr. Without the full path the command to enable the second libertine.map would not have been unambiguous.

That doesn't work like this. ALl map files are searched via kpsewhich. I
am not sure whether full path would work at all, though ...

> Or is tlmgr smart enough to sort that out?

Not a question of tlmgr, if at all of "updmap", which does it simply via

Yes, this always works.
