This is probably due to an error that was present for some time in Debian 
Installer:

apt-setup (1:0.15) unstable; urgency=low

  * Fix broken proxy setting code in 90security. Closes: #378868
    Some systems installed before this fix will have Acquire::http::proxy
    "false" set in apt.conf, which leads to breakage in some situations.
    Also, if a proxy was set, it would not be written to the file.
