Hi Jan, sorry for very late reply.

Thanks for your suggestion.  If I understand correctly, this change only
affects the case NODIR is nil (or, more precisely, NODIR is neither t
nor `path'.)  Right?

Though I agree that the current implementation of `TeX-strip-extension'
doesn't match its doc string and the proposed change seems sensible, I'm
worrying about the impact of this change.  In `TeX-master-file', we read
      (if (TeX-match-extension name)
          ;; If it already has an extension...
          (if (equal extension TeX-default-extension)
              ;; Use instead of the default extension
              (setq extension nil)
            ;; Otherwise drop it.
            (setq name (TeX-strip-extension name))))
.  This is the only place, if my brief survey is correct, in the current
AUCTeX source where `TeX-strip-extension' is called with NODIR argument
being nil.  Are you sure that the proposed change brings no bad side

Sorry, I don't quite understand what you write here:
(1) The line 2332 in tex.el of the current git master branch is just
(defun TeX-master-file (&optional extension nondirectory ask)
(2) Presuming that your NONDIR actually means NONDIRECTORY of
`TeX-master-file', that must be non-nil in order to make difference in
the behavior of `TeX-master-file' if NONDIRECTORY is forwarded to
`TeX-strip-extension'.  So the case that NONDIRECTORY is nil is not
