Are you sure you're not looking at RV putty
? I had not seen the stuff until I got my Airstream, but RV putty appears to be different than plumbers putty in that it is not as oily, and it does not pull apart as easily.
Not that any of my post makes that much difference in the grand scheme, but I felt inclined to toss out another material possibility.
