Is this a bonding strip?

Trying to determine if the BX (AC?) cable in my house has a bonding strip - is that the metal wrapped around the cable here where it enters the box?

Yes it is bonding strip. Test if the cable is grounded correctly. In some old houses, if some non-electrician worked on the wiring they may have used non-meltalic junction box causing loss of ground.
Also, rusted boxes or cable may cause loss of ground as well.
