It's probably been pulled in by some dependency.  Package manager is not
very smart with this.  You need to drop a dummy org package with a high
enough version so that Org never gets upgraded via package manager.

No, you shouldn't have it installed via ELPA.  It may work one day and
stop working another depending on which patch your initializations
actually take.

Some other package pulls it in as a dependency.  Package manager
operates on the assumption that you install everything via ELPA.  If you
don't, then you have to take care of that yourself.
