On Debian, microcode updates are embedded in the main initrd, not put in
a secondary initrd.

The /usr/share/initramfs-tools/hooks/intel_microcode script is
responsible for adding the appropriate update files, scripts, and tools
to the initrd.

If you have this package installed and have rebooted since the last
microcode update, then almost certainly.
