netbase is Priority:important but it doesn't get installed by
sbuild-createchroot which drives debootstrap with --variant=buildd. How are you
using sbuild-createchroot so that it installs netbase? Are you using the
--include option?

Nevertheless, there is now a commit in my git which doesn't overwrite
/etc/hosts if it exists and if it doesn't it now writes the exact same content
that would also have been written by the current version of the netbase
