dpkg -S searches the database for the package owning the file you
specify, the file can be either a simple name or an absolute path.  

the reason /initrd is unknown (no matter how you search for it you
will not find /initrd in any package) is because it only exists in the
base2_2.tgz tarball. no package creates nor maintaines it.  its part
of the base system itself.
