COMMENTS

The pseudo or almostpalindromic numbers considered here are not related to the similarly named but different concepts mentioned in comments on A003555 and in A060087  A060088.
We could consider "more general" palindromic concatenations like A.B.B.A, A.B.C.B.A, etc., but all of these can be written as A.B'.A with B' = B.B resp. B.C.B, etc. The result is nonpalindromic (i.e., not in A002113) as required, if and only if at least one of the strings is nonpalindromic.
Here, A is allowed to have only one digit, so most of the first 100 terms are of the form 1.B.1 where B = 10, 12, 13, ... (palindromes 11, 22, 33, ... excluded).
If all of the strings A, B (...) are required to be nonpalindromic, the sequence starts with terms of the form A.A with A = 10, 12, 13, ..., 98: 1010, 1212, 1313, 1414, 1515, 1616, 1717, 1818, 1919, 2020, 2121, 2323, .... This is a subsequence of A239019 (numbers which are not primitive words over the alphabet {0,...,9} when written in base 10).
