well for debian we prefer the conservative default to ship
the newest and greatest only in the newest one.
and even this is sometimes questioned see #358397 or #382808

if the user wants to do it, he can do it by hand:
update-initramfs -u -k all

that will update all the initramfs that initramfs-tools generated.
although i would not recommed that for udev 0.097-1

best regards
