I figured out what was going on: /etc/initramfs-tools/initramfs.conf
can of course be overridden by entries in /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/
and, indeed, there is a /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/driver-policy
lurking in there. The contents and timestamp indicate that the
installer put it there. So it appears that the system is initialised
with contradictory values, and MODULES=most is written into
/etc/initramfs-tools/initramfs.conf regardless. Rather untidy.
