AFAIK, the .cd file is on all cd but only contains the Packages
information for the CD itself and any preceding CD :

CD 1 lists packages on CD 1
CD 2 lists packages on CD 1 & 2
CD 3 lists packages on CD 1 & 2 & 3

This has been done so that one can use a CD set with non-free by simply
putting the non-free CD as the last CD instead of the second one ...

Otherwise the Packages.cd would have been different on the two main disk for
a set of disks with non-free ...
