Since I have a suitable system, I have now reproduced this myself.
There are two bugs here:

1. The installer-with-firmware is not installing firmware-amd-graphics
   automatically on systems with AMD GPUs that need it.

2. The Desktop task now includes plymouth, which adds graphics drivers
   to the initramfs.  The firmware they request should be included as
   well, and will be if it is already installed.  But installing
   firmware-amd-graphics does not trigger an initramfs rebuild.

I'm cloning this and will fix the second bug, but I don't know how to
fix the first.

Nothing is ever a complete failure;
it can always serve as a bad example.
