Is there any reason NOT to enable busybox sha3sums?
(I don't care busybox-udeb or busybox-static.)

    -# CONFIG_SHA3SUM is not set

Per this handy reference table, everyone should be on SHA-3 by now:

I'd like to switch from b2sum to sha3sum, but

1) Debian only ships coreutils 8.32, and even
   latest coreutils (9.1) lacks "cksum -a sha3"; and

2) Debian's busybox is built without "busybox sha3sum".

3) Debian's python3 understands SHA-3 (hashlib.sha3_512), but
   lacks a turnkey equivalent of
   "sha3sum --check SHA3SUMS" and
   "sha3sum --tag -- *.changes >SHA3SUMS".
