It isn't ;). I have asked it on debian-user and debian-devel, and the
general consensus seems to be that an /etc/rc.local is not wanted.
It might be retained as a text-only file, explaining how to do
local customizations. That's what it already does in a way; it
says claims that /etc/rc.local is run but it's use is discouraged.
(It wasn't used in 0.93R6 either).

AFAIAC, it can be removed.
