Technically, that just doesn't cut it, and I'm not sure what makes you
coy about posting them. Which files get used depends on how the source
line is expressed (source/source-directory), and then on what the
filenames are for the files which you cat'd with * (that have to match
a filename pattern).
On Debian, it's normal for the d-i to write (and sometimes unwrite)
the /e/n/i file. But what gets written depends on the installation
method. But it's not even clear that you used the d-i to install your
system, if I've followed the thrread correctly.
As I've said, though, I'll go no further in looking at the problems
you have because I think that many of them are of your own making.
