With at least some types of injectors, it would be possible to blow steam back into a tender cistern.
Also possible that engines normally operating in extreme cold regions may have had heating coils
in the cistern. Steam heat was commonly used in oil tenders that carried Bunker C.

Insulating layer - good possibility.
You also wrote: "On the other hand whoever heard of a steam locomotive with
a lagged tender tank?". Good question - could the water in the tender freeze?
Why not? Perhaps there is a way to inject steam into the tender cistern to keep
the water from freezing if a locomotive is out in extreme cold for extended
periods of time? Just a guess on my part!

I think we are looking at an insulating layer if you enlarge the
picture you can see lots of vertical lines that might be a wrapping of
insulation. Insulating a water car that might freeze would seem logical as
expanding ice could burst the tank. On the other hand whoever heard of a steam
locomotive with a lagged tender tank?.
