No need even to temporarily disable mpls - pseudowire interfaces are
automatically created on the me3600 platform and don't disappear even if
the xconnect is deleted.

E.g. this is a deleted mpls xconnect which no longer appears in the
running config on an me3600 running 15.3.foo:

Rebooting clears this.

No idea why the OP saw one of these with l2tpv2 encapsulation.  Active
configuration?  If not, then refer to tac.
