I consider this a bug in etcupdate.

How can that be a bug in etcupdate? All etcupdate tries to do is match /etc to what an /etc would look like on a virgin system.

On new installations, the defaults are machine dependend, but at least
i386 enables four VTs by default via sysinst. I guess amd64 should
copy that (it happens in md_cleanup_install()).

I might agree. But that is not something to blame on etcupdate.
