V16.1 - does it have a PURGE tab / function ?

No, but many have asked.

In the meantime, you can select multiple Blocks in the Blocks palette and delete them. I think this became available in V15, maybe V14.
You can select multiple Layers in the Design Director (use the Shift &/or Ctrl key) and delete.

PURGE is a must thing - Anyone to write  a script / Add-on ?

I second that.  I think it continues to slip below the radar as it is not sexy enough.

I have created a VBScript which will create a sorted list of all the currently used blocks in a drawing. From there, unfortunately, you'll have to delete the unused blocks manually. It's far from perfect -- please consider this to be a first stab at the problem.
