I suspect this may be "liner paper"....sometimes used in renovations when
the underlying plaster work or plaster board is in uneven or poor condition.

It looks pretty much as you described....plain white or ivory..somtimes with
a faint pattern to provide tooth so the decorative paper hung next has a
good foundation. It is usually sturdy .....

Groan. That's what I was afraid of. The horrible wallpaper that is
peeling off our kitchen and hall bathroom was put directly on the
drywall, too. The house was built in 1980. Typically cheap modern
construction. Gah.
