There's a similar issue with /usr, which is discussed at length in bugs
#149256, #149741 and #150358. The solution used for the discover packages
in sid (which I arrived at independantly) was to run the discover
startup script later in the boot sequence after disks are mounted,
priority 36 IIRC.

It's safe to change the boot order yourself.
