And perhaps it was a ballistic descent from orbit descent capsule "Shenzhou-11". The deviation of the estimated landing point of more than 100 km

If there was the ballistic descent then there should be an undershoot, not an overshoot.

under performance on the deorbit burn or delay in burn start or manual deorbit burn are my initial theories.

The exact time of the landing of the descent capsule "Shenzhou-11"
It seems this is the fourth estimate for landing time/position -- which may be not equal to actual position and time. Moreover, anik says there's 1.7 km distance between this 4th estimate and actual place of landing.

Still no sign of the Shenzhou 11 orbital module being catalogued.

Has there been any indication that Tiangong 2 raised its orbit after the Shenzhou 11 undocking?   If it did then (as previously indicated) we could well have a repeat of the Tiangong 1/Shenzhou 9 situation where no orbital data were available for Tiangong 1 in its higher orbit for about ten days, while the data for the Shenzhou 9 orbital module were issued under the Tiangong 1 catalogue number.

I has asked Space-Track to raise this issue ...........

Still no TLEs available for this catalogue number.

As BX-2 seems to continue maneuver relative to 41765, I believe TG-2 is indeed tracked under this number since the pre-undocking maneuver on Nov 15.

Chinese astronauts meet the press after space mission

BEIJING, Dec. 7 (Xinhua) -- The two astronauts who manned China's Shenzhou-11 mission met the press Wednesday following almost three weeks in quarantine.

Jing Haipeng, 50, commander of the Shenzhou-11 spacecraft, and Chen Dong, 38, appeared in good spirits and shared their experiences with the press.

"Today, we fulfilled our commitment to (making the Shenzhou-11 mission a complete success)," Jing said.

Launched on Oct. 17, Shenzhou-11 docked two days later with China's first space lab, Tiangong-2, where the two astronauts lived for 30 days, the longest time a taikonaut has spent in space.

After safely returning to Earth on Nov. 18, the two astronauts were quarantined to help them readapt to life on Earth.

It was the third space mission for Jing, who also participated in the Shenzhou-7 and Shenzhou-9 missions.

"Compared with previous missions, I really enjoyed and experienced weightlessness during this mission as a result of improved technology and working environment," Jing told reporters.

The two astronauts were able to watch TV programs and enjoy delicious food during their stay in space.

"Listening to music and watching TV made us feel good when we ate," Jing said.

It was Chen's first space mission. He said that at the very beginning, he needed restraining devices for every step, but he gradually adapted to the zero gravity environment.

"I began to enjoy the zero gravity environment and learned new moves such as somersaulting and whirling in space," Chen said.

"I would give Chen a mark of 100 out of 100," Jing told the press while commenting on Chen's performance.

According to Huang Weifen, deputy chief designer of the astronaut system with the Astronaut Center of China, the astronauts' health checks met expectations, although they will continue to be observed for another month to ensure they are completely acclimatized.

The Shenzhou-11 mission is part of China's ambitious plan to build a permanent manned space station.

Advance apologies for appearing as a negative Nancy, but is this one of the Chinese museums that is closed to foreigners?

To end on a positive note, that looks like it would be a really cool place to take a behind-the-scenes tour.  There's more interesting "junk" on the margins of the photo.
