Any brand and any model of rear projection tv that has 3 picture tubes (red-green-blue) to generate and project the picture at tv front screen will have convergence section.
R61WH76 is rear projection tv that has three picture tubes inside to produce an image, now picture tubes location is different so tv will show 3 images of red, green and blue tubes. All these three images need to convergence on each other to get one picture, this is done by convergence section.
I think repairman might got confused with other type of tv that calls DLP, it has one lamp for back light source and light engine to produce image on front screen. This process is similar as multimedia projector that throw image on wall screen in conference room.
Take off back of your tv to confirm that it has 3 picture tubes inside.
Hope these info will help you.

Thats a very common problem with that model which happens when the flybacks bad solder joint causes an arc which blows the FL231, Diode DL231 and Capacitor CL230 on the deflection board. thats what causes the Auto convergence feature to disappear from the menu options. You can get the Repair kit called the convergence option missing repair kit from its under the RCA repair kits category and contains the parts plus instructions for the repair.

That model doesnt have the normal convergence components that nost other sets have. There are no convergence ICs the convergence is actually affected by three boards within that chassis it can be deflection board related, Convergence power board or the convergence amp board. Based on your TVs setup menu diagnosis will determine wether a component needs replacement or wether a circuit board will need replacement.
