On the other hand, it makes quite a bit of sense to have some kind of
default/minimal behavior for this, which can easily be overridden in a
post-build script / root filesystem overlay.

To me, this is a little bit like "let's make the installation of the
OpenSSH server configuration file optional, because the default doesn't
suite me".

If anything, the name of the option should be revisited, because
"supplementary" is quite vague.

But overall, I'm not really convinced that we need to change anything
here, I believe the current behavior is OK.
