That answers my quiestion. The fact that nodes not selected as MPRs,
send TC messages when TCRedundancy=2 corresponds to an expected

The paragraph of the RFC that confused me was that of 9.3 (TC Message
Generation) that says:

   "In order to build the topology information base, each node, which has
   been selected as MPR, broadcasts Topology Control (TC) messages."

but, maybe it doesn't mean that non-MPR nodes are not able to send TCs.

Thanks for your interest.
