For what it's worth, if I build your package on Linux with R 3.6.3 and
--no-build-vignettes, it results in R/argoFloats.rdb being ~2.4M when
installed on either same Linux or R-hub's macOS "10.13.6 High Sierra,
R-release, CRAN's setup" [*]. Perhaps you would be able to find a
difference between artifacts from the R-hub installation and your own.

Best regards,
