Does it appear anywhere in a debian package, and if not, where can I get
hold of a copy?

In version the install-info from dpkg was made compatible with
GNU's install-info.

No it wasn't, it was simply made to support getting the section from the info file itself. No attempt has been made to make them command-line compatible, which is what this entire issue is about.
