on the piuparts side we are tracking this as 834766 for which I have a
applied a fix (ignoring those directories…) in the develop branch today
and which I also deployed on piuparts.d.o.

Affected packages have also been rescheduled, hopefully there will be
good results tomorrow ;-)

Rather obviously I think 834524 should indeed be properly fixed in
init-system-helpers so that the fix/workaround for 834524 can be
removed, hopefully rather sooner than later.
