1) Have you checked for a relatively thin layer of ply or lauan under the vinyl? I ask because it’s relatively uncommon to run vinyl directly to the 3/4” subfloor.

That residue looks heavy and might be stubborn. I’d like for you to do a little experiment: wet a 3” x 3” area of the tile with sealer, wait 3-5 minutes, then use a little corner of a rag that is...
