Given that lyluatex (as its name already says) works with lyluatex
only, I wonder why the package is located in

tex/latex/lyluatex/lyluatex.sty

instead of

tex/lualatex/lyluatex/lyluatex.sty

Should be `... works with lualatex only', of course.

Because it was uploaded as CTAN:support/lyluatex instead of
CTAN:macros/luatex/latex, hence different defaults applied, and I didn't
happen to notice. I'll fix it after the release. Thanks. -k

You don't have to change anything if you don't want. I'll fix the
location in TL after the release.

In principle, I do think macros/luatex/latex would be a more appropriate
place on CTAN than support (which is something you would specify when
you upload), because lyluatex does not include user-visible command-line
executables, just Lua code, if I'm understanding correctly. Packages
with executables is usually what the CTAN:support directory is used
for. But of course there are no 100% rules, so leaving it alone is fine
by me. --best, karl.
