Having caught up on the bug logs:

The monitor frequency part of this has already been reported, a fix has
been sketched out, and the issue is on the package's TODO list:

  + #229850: xserver-xfree86: [debconf] monitor selection methods need to be
    more careful about clobbering autodetected monitor sync ranges; study Jay
    Berkenbilt's feedback [BR]

There seems to be no point cloning this bug just to merge it.

Please see #229850 for much more discussion of what's going on.

I am therefore reassigning it to discover for the remainder of the
issue.  I'm pretty sure nothing the XFree86 packages cats
/proc/bus/usb/devices, but the xserver-xfree86.config script does invoke
discover, so that accounts for the behavior seen.
