This isn't wokedom - I'd say it was the opposite.
It's being old fashioned, and sticking with everyday sexism 'Mansize' for large tissues had been in use for decades, and I though had now been dropped everywhere. Clearly not.
I do wonder what goes through the minds of the staff making and marketing this stuff that leads then to choose the outdated name?
OTOH - the concept ofm'man flu' never quite goes away, does it? Perhaosmthey shouid be remarketed as hankies for hypochondriacs?

A mansize tissue would be far too big to put in your pocket even if you were a bloke in a suit. It'd be like a small sheet.
'Mansize' always was daft - the normal labelling now as 'large' is much more sensible.
