It's not, afaics. My guess is it's related to [1]
I suspect this can be fixed by dropping the
Breaks: initscripts (<< 2.88dsf-59.5)
from the initscripts package and only keeping the Replaces (I know this
is not a 100% policy compliant, but I've seen this approach used before
where apt got confused).
