Probably due to this "init u" in the postinst (i.e. perfectly normal and expected).
See init(8).

case "$sysvinitver" in
                if [ -x /sbin/init -a -x /bin/readlink ]; then
                        if [ "$(readlink /proc/1/exe 2>/dev/null)" = "/sbin/init" ]; then
                                (init u ; sleep 1)
