No, I cannot: this command belongs to the kbd package, but I do not
have this package installed on any of the Debian boxes I use.

This holds even for the most recently installed box (about 1 month
old), apparently because

$ aptitude why console-tools
i   acpi-support-base Depends console-tools | console-utilities

and hence the console-terminus recommendation was already satisfied by

$ aptitude why kbd
i   console-setup    Depends    console-terminus (>= 4.26)
i A console-terminus Recommends kbd | console-tools

Should I switch from console-tools to kbd, in your opinion?

Or is there an equivalent command in console-tools?

No, it doesn't.
After issuing the 'setupcon' command (as root), the look stays the same
(broken lines).
