Nemesis has never had track replacement, just a re-paint. Nemesis doesn't need a re-track anyway, it has retained its smoothness.

It's possible that they could have temporarily removed that section of track on Nemesis for non destructive testing or preventative maintenance. I know Sea World Orlando was removing one section of track/support per night to perform NDT and perform any necessary welding as a means of extending the ride's service life. I'd imagine that Nemesis' entire section around the loop undergoes high stress, and also that it'd be much easier to check the part on the midway instead of in a pit.

Huh, didn't think it could be done so swiftly given modern steel coasters are built to millimeter precision. TIL

I thought a section of nemmies loop was replaced too, thought it had been posted on AT’s official social media a year or 2 ago with pics, but can’t find it now.

Yeah I remember a piece being replaced, I thought I'd read it was at risk of fracturing so they replaced it.
