Did you try debootstrap with init-system-helpers 1.65.2 in unstable?
I could reproduce the problem; "debootstrap --print-debs unstable
unstable https://deb.debian.org/debian" or similar should be sufficient
to show the problem.
I wrote a possible patch for debootstrap in , but being debootstrap
we might need to have it in stable as well. Maybe someone has other
ideas as well.
