This is now fixed in Debian. It would be nice to sync it to Bionic.

  kdump-tools won't create initrd for previously installed kernels

Status in makedumpfile package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  When kdump-tools is installed, it creates an initrd for the running
  kernel. For kernels installed after that, the postinst part will be
  run and a initrd will be created as well. However, for kernels that
  are already installed, it won't create them.

  As an example, when the user is running 4.4.0-112-generic, but has
  4.13.0-32-generic installed, kdump-tools will create an initrd for
  4.4.0-112-generic. When the user later reboots into 4.13.0-32-generic,
  the initrd is not present, and kdump-tools won't load.
