We want it to be 755, so if they end up being 775, that's a bug.

It should be harmless because /bin is owned by root, and by default
only root is in the group root.

For the record, I've just used netinst iso for 8.4.0 and KVM to
install a new system, and yes, I can reproduce this. You don't have to
install anything at all, just the base system.

I've just checked and all my systems have 775!

This is certainly surprising.

Most probably this is a bug in either:

* Some package in the base system (would be detected by lintian).
* debootstrap
* debian-installer

Help to debug this would be appreciated. Maybe we can fix it for
Debian 8.6.
