This has not been supported for years before even Devuan’s founding.
You’ve had to have the initrd mount /usr already for several releases
if it’s not on the same filesystem as / is.

Note that Debian bookworm and up fully ceased to support that and are
actively removing support code, so I expect Devuan to not be able to
support that any more either. You have got to merge them or move on ☹
