You are right perhaps.

It seems that there are two problems; one is
pdftex/pdflatex did not work without tetex-extra and
the other is pdftex.fmt/pdflatex.fmt were not removed
when tetex-extra was removed.
Which is the problem you want to solve?
I guess it might be okay if pdftex/pdflatex depend
on tetex-extra but do not know the reason why pdftex/pdflatex
are in tetex-extra.
By the way, descriptions of tetex-extra/tetex-bin/tetex-base
might be not so good.
