I have

postinst_hook = update-grub2
postrm_hook   = update-grub2

in /etc/kernel-img.conf for that.

So the search commands in the generated grub.cfg aren't causing problems
for you?

IME it detects the Mac OS installation and puts an entry for it in
grub.cfg, but apparently grub2 can only boot Mac OS on x86 at this
point. Not a real problem for me as there's always the alt/option key
boot menu.
