He clearly explained that the Encore DLC wasn’t working, but the game is actually functioning even with the changed menus. The Encore DLC is a feature from Sonic Mania Plus. More info about the DLC came from an e-mail that Sega sent to Sega Nerds:
For all gamers who purchased the original digital version of Sonic Mania on console and PC, an Encore DLC pack will be available for sale to access the new features, with more details to come at a later date.
Here are 2 screenshots for a closer inspection, and a side by side comparison of the leaked menu to the recent live one:
