When someone previously questioned why Northern set fares didn't have off-peak day returns the response they got was it's because the Anytime single is 10p or more cheaper than the Off Peak Day Return so one is not required.

However, today I've noticed that for a few fares between Altrincham and the Wirral, such as Altrincham to Spital the fares are:

Off Peak Day Single: N/A
Off Peak Single: N/A
Anytime Single: £17.10
Off Peak Day Return: N/A
Anytime Day Return: N/A
Off Peak Return: £15.40
Anytime Return: £19.30

Should an Off Peak Single exist with this flow with the single ticket costing more than the Off Peak Return?

Your post does not make sense (which is not unusual :roll::|). There is no such thing as an "Off Peak Anytime Single". The £17.10 fare you quote is an Anytime Day Single. Futhermore, the flow you mention is set by TPE, not Northern.

There should probably be an Off Peak (Day) Single at a pound less than the Off Peak Return, as exists for most other flows.

Pressed Ctrl+C too many times. I've corrected it now.

I didn't say the fare was set by Northern. I was mentioning the thread in which it came up in previously, which you asked for non-Northern fares to be not discussed in.

All three fares are relevant here as the off-peak return prohibits break of journey on the outbound leg. Since it's valid at any time, it should probably be the only fare sold for most journeys.
