For amd64 CD-ROMs, the package list for CD-ROMs is split between
build/pkg-lists/cdrom/amd64.cfg and
build/pkg-lists/cdrom/isolinux/amd64.cfg.  The latter is where, for
example, ata-modules is listed.

In general, installer builds that include(d) virtio-modules, and aren't
meant for netboot, should include scsi-modules.  (scsi-{common,extra}-
modules are also mentioned in some lists, but they no longer exist.)

I think this patch will fix arm64:

--- a/build/pkg-lists/cdrom/arm64.cfg
+++ b/build/pkg-lists/cdrom/arm64.cfg
@@ -13,6 +13,8 @@ virtio-modules-${kernel:Version} ?
 # USB and firewire cdroms both need this.
+# Support for SCSI cdroms.
 # Real ATA hardware needs this.
--- END ---

There are two other lists that look like they might be for netboot-ish
builds, but I'm not sure:
