That is expected. We stopped shipping both amd64 and i386 blobs in the
same package at the time when the amd64 kernel was removed from the i386
architecture (because just the foreign amd64 kernel could be installed).

And given that noone has requested being able to be build modules for
amd64 and i386 simultaneously, I'm not going investigate how to make
this package M-A: same :-)
