Could someone who is more familiar with this point out why this isn't
the case, and whether code would make it better?

I know for my buildd setup, I just have sbuild update the chroots before
building, but perhaps there are architectures where the disk is so slow
that this would be prohibitive?

If so, it should be possible to take out a lock to prevent new sbuild
processes on an lvm source chroot, update the source, and then remove
the lock. But maybe there are buildds which aren't using lvm?
