More complete checking gives the right explanation:

In lowmem mode, the locale is set to C on the installed system.

In localechooser post-base-installer, the "locales" package is *not*
installed if LOCALE=C.

So, validlocale and locale-gen are not present on the installed

As their only point is to generate the locales, it seems that my
proposed fix is very probably correct.

I'm currently testing it in details.
