I don't know.  My computer does not have a USB floppy drive, that's true.
It is a traditional AT-style floppy disk controller with two floppy
drives.  And I can no longer reproduce the problem.  Having a floppy
disk in the drive at boot time just once seems to have permanently
cured the problem.  Did a udev rule get created as a result of a
"ready" floppy drive at boot time?  I don't know.  But I don't think
there's much point in filing a bug report if I can no longer reproduce
the problem and I don't know what cured it.
