That doesn't match what I have seen while testing it, and what I see
even now in a sid chroot where usr-is-merged is pre-installed:

# dpkg -l | grep merge
ii  usr-is-merged                        30+nmu1                           all          Transitional package to assert a merged-/usr system

apt does not attempt to install usrmerge.
