To prevent the kernel package creating the initrd image on installation
(eg. because you plan to create an initrd image via another process):

man kernel-img.conf
(kernel-package package).

If like me, you can't see any option to disable generation of initrd
images, then:

reportbug kernel-image

I am not sure why you would want to remove the package without removing
the kernel?
