The job to create symlinks is done in the postinst otherwise everything is
left broken for far too long. Thus I believe the trigger is not essential.
But I couldn't find any clear documentation on its role.

But of course it needs some investigation. Looking at
/usr/sbin/update-python-modules, it activates the trigger with --no-await
already...  so this one is definitely not a problem. :)
