Does it reproduce on recent bootlogd? It works for me for fresh Stretch
installation. Also, now bootlogd creates /var/log/boot with following
lines in postinst (line 27):

	echo "(Nothing has been logged yet. If you're still seeing this message your current init system might not write bootup messages to the system console at all.)" >| "$F"
