Well if you try to install it again it sets it to manually installed.
So If you run sudo apt-get install totem, if gives this output

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
totem is already the newest version.
totem set to manually installed.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

You'll notice the next to last line says its set to manually installed
