What do you mean, "several"?  What init scripts use this fragment?  No init
scripts on any of my systems do this.

Looks like nonsense to me.  I think you should file a bug.  For one thing,
any init script that needs lsb-base (>= 3.0-6) *should depend on lsb-base
(>= 3.0-6)*, not throw an error if it's not installed.
