I guess there isn't something for Vagrant like the Official AMIs for
EC2[1] which are (were? AFAIK, he doesn't works for Amazon anymore)
maintained by James Bromberger. What I found closer to this are those
boxes[2] provided by Kraksoft[3]. The scripts used to generate it are
available at their repository[4].

... "are" maintained by me! :) . Yes, not working for AWS now, but still maintaining these and pushing them to the AWS marketplace and sharing them on EC2 - with several DDs now maintaining other Debian related activities in the same account.

As you noted, in bootstrap-vz there is a virtualbox-vagrant.manifest.json, so I suggest that -- if there is a way to publish (and sign/prove) the image into an official vagrant repo -- then ping the DPL and confirm doing this (a loose delegation) then do it!! ;)

You can, of course, always use bootstrap-vz[5] to create your own boxes.
