So is this post the rebuttal, or are you posting the evidence elsewhere?

OK, just so that it's clear, you have a disk with documented
PARTLABELs, and after installing an OS with the d-i, the UUIDs
and PARTUUIDs have been altered.

You /seem/ to then be saying that /this/ is evidence that the
PARTLABELs have been altered. Is that your contradiction?

If the PARTUUIDs are altered, it would be interesting to know what
you are doing in the partitioner step of the d-i. Your posts have
only mentioned reformatting partitions, not repartitioning disks.
