I have been trying to recapture my memory and I think it was installed
at the time where EFI boot first was introduced into Unstable - can't
remember exactly when ;-)

Yes, but you need to reinstall the new package to be able to remove it:
Preparing to unpack .../shim-signed_1.35+15.4-4_amd64.deb ...
Unpacking shim-signed:amd64 (1.35+15.4-4) over (1.34+15.4-2) ...
cat: /sys/firmware/efi/fw_platform_size: No such file or directory
dpkg: warning: old shim-signed:amd64 package post-removal script
subprocess returned error exit status 1
dpkg: trying script from the new package instead ...
dpkg: ... it looks like that went OK
