I guess you meant udev rules files.

We'd probably have to check them, if e.g. they need special system
groups, call external tools etc.
The udev-udeb (and initramfs-tools integration) was mostly taken over
as-is from the old udev package. So Marco might know more why the
initramfs hook and udev-udeb use a more limited set of udev rules.

This sounds indeed like something that should be fixed in stable. If the
proposed change is confirmed to fix those mentioned issues: I do have an
open pu request for buster (#956216). I could update that and with a bit
of luck get that into 10.4.


Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
