I think it was mentioned the first time in #726434, at least thats the first 
hit when search for "Debian Büsingen" and it's also the first time I remember 
this popping up.

In that bug you suggested that the origin was in tzdata (and not tzsetup) and 
indeed this is from the upstream tzdata NEWS file:

Release 2013a - 2013-02-27 09:20:35 -0800
  Changes affecting current and future time stamps:
    New Zones Asia/Khandyga, Asia/Ust-Nera, Europe/Busingen.
    (Thanks to Tobias Conradi and Arthur David Olson.)

and then this hit sid on March 6th 2013 and finally on October 15th 2013

But the question was left there, I assume because the missing and then fixed 
translations distracted from thinking twice whether it would be useful to have 
that question there in the first place.

Dummersdorf or Schiefenthal?"....:-). But,anyway, better at least have this 

I cannot see anyone arguing in favor of keeping the question in d-i in
