As it turns out, the version of the package in unstable actaully does
ship with a bad multiline variable definition in
/etc/default/prometheus-node-exporter.

(I got confused because I quickly installed the package on another
system, to check whether the problem was one of my own creation, and
did not realise that I had installed the older version that only added
a single argument to the ARGS variable).

The fix is to add trailing backslashes to indicate that lines should be
continued. This is documented in systemd.exec(5):

    EnvironmentFile=
        Similar to Environment= but reads the environment variables from a text 
file. The text file should contain
        new-line-separated variable assignments. Empty lines, lines without an 
"=" separator, or lines starting with ; or #
        will be ignored, which may be used for commenting. A line ending with a 
backslash will be concatenated with the
        following one, allowing multiline variable definitions. The parser 
strips leading and trailing whitespace from the
        values of assignments, unless you use double quotes (").
