Ah, sorry, you are right: the 7 is the number of partitions in the label.
You can change it (e.g. by: disklabel -e wd0) and increase it, upto the
architecture specific maximum.

I think sysinst nowadays defaults to set it to the maximum supported number,
but in older releases did set it to last used one (or vice versa).
