This is a mysterious® thing ... Honestly, I think this happens when
at any time updmap (for you) or updmap-sys (for the whole system) is
run and it does not find these MAP file fragments it once had found
and active. It's just an observation, I never tried to take some
hours or a weekend to debug the updmap script (updmap-sys uses that
script, too). My recommended cure is (for private use without 'sudo -
H' and '-sys'):
sudo -H updmap-sys --disable MAP.map
sudo -H updmap-sys --enable Map MAP.map
The --syncwithtrees options should be able to clean the list, but I
think it only comments unavailable MAP file fragment identifiers (in
German this would have been a real BIG word!). If you have the time:
can you check after the disable command whether the commented line
was removed? You seem to know how to use grep ...

Tipa gets added because it's part of gwTeX, so i-Installer does this
(and it also adds a Hebrew MAP file fragment without need). In the
end it does not matter whether a MAP file fragment is more than once
listed: the contents of the MAP files fragments gets sorted and
duplicates are removed for the final MAP files.
