This I believe. It's most likely due to some Raspbian-specific startup 
script that tries to set up networking with DHCP.

It's almost impossible to guess (remotely) what *other* changes have 
been done to the Raspbian image. You might want to try asking in the 
Raspbian support channels instead.

Technically I could download the image and inspect it locally, assuming 
I can even find it (including at least a download link would have been 

At the moment I do have other stuff to do which is (hopefully) helping 
more people actually running Debian.

You might try that as well (running pure Debian that is). According to 
this page  https://wiki.debian.org/RaspberryPi3 Debian runs unchanged on 
the Raspberry Pi 3.

The images linked from there are not official, but they are build by a 
Debian Developer. The likelihood of custom scripts is, I believe, close 
to zero (though apparently this image is also set up for DHCP by 
default, have fun :) ).

For a system that works as you expect it I suggest you do your own 
installation, either with Debian Installer or even with debootstrap.

Thoroughly document in detail every step (e.g. using --variant=minbase 
for debootstrap can make a *huge* difference to the final image), or 
even better, script it.

That way whenever you run into issues you can just post the script used 
and potential helpers will know what you did or did not.

Good luck with fixing your ssh.

Kind regards,
