OK, missed them first.

Some of them happen during the HW detection stage, which is
essentially impossible to avoid. Probing for a floppy disk at this
stage is essential.

Some occur during the partitioning stage. Here, I'll have a less
strong advice so I'll let other D-I contributors give precisions or
details about why partman is probing the fd0 device (which obviously
adds delays on your floppyless system).
