First off, thanks for the time to send a bug report.
Second off, this is not a bug in dpkg.
Thirdly, it's not a bug at all. Why not?
* the program should be in /sbin, since /usr might not be mounted
until later in the boot process
* init scripts should not hard-code paths to init programs, but
should rely on PATH being properly set.
I assure you, on a full hamm system, all is peachy with
start-stop-daemon being where it is. Even if you're NFS'ing /usr.
