Sound like the user-setup part of the finish-install.d scripts is not
executed.  The root password is gathered in the postinst, and set in
the finish-install.d script.

Can you provide the last 500 lines of the installation log,
/var/log/installer/syslog, to make it possible to try to figure out
what is going on?

I have not investigated the issue, just wanted to provide some
pointers for those that got time to look into this.

Happy hacking,
