On this ARMX6 it is using
Toolbox 1.57 (18 Jun 2016)

A search of my SSD shows that there is only one copy of the toolbox 
module there, in boot.resources.!System.310.modules.toolbox.toolbox 
It's a 2002 file, and obviously isn't being used.

The 1.57 must be coming from the ROM image.

In your case something very early in the boot process must be loading 
a module from a different location, and I believe a feature of toolbox 
is that it can't be replaced later.

I would start by searching your SSD for copies of anything called 
toolbox (!locate is good for this). Assuming you find one, check what 
else is in that part of the file system. It seems likely that there 
will be an obey file nearby which runs the module.

Once you've found that, search !boot for a reference to the obey file 
or the directory containing it.
