Thanks for confirming this, Bernard.
I've sent an email to RunRev support in the hopes they can give me a definitive answer on the implications of this lack of support on usage of the 'cipherNames' property and 'encrypt' command on mobile platforms.

"industrial strength encryption" relies on the openssl libraries.  They are
not available on mobile platforms (I conclude this is why Monty provides
that feature with an external).

There are various discussions of this on the forum.  But nothing that meets
your requirements.

The Android Release Notes for 5.5.3 say "industrial strength encryption and
public key cryptography (planned for a future release)".
