That line isn't executed in the normal case. There's some weird
formatting going on, but:

    if [ "$DISPLAY" ] && which setxkbmap >/dev/null; then
        setxkbmap -option '' -model "$model" "$layout" "$variant" "$options" || 
        # setting the font corrupts X
        # setting up the keyboard breaks wayland
        if type setupcon >/dev/null 2>&1; then
            setupcon --save-only
            cat >&2 <<EOF
Your console font configuration will be updated the next time your system
boots. If you want to update it now, run 'setupcon' from a virtual console.
        fi    else
        case "`uname`" in
                [ ! -f /var/run/hurd-console.pid ] || kill `cat 
                if type setupcon >/dev/null 2>&1; then
                    setupcon --force --save

see the "fi    else" - the first branch is taken if $DISPLAY is set and
sexkbmap and setupcon exists.

Is $DISPLAY not set for you when this runs?

You can add `set -x' to the top of
/var/lib/dpkg/info/keyboard-configuration.postinst and run something
like `sudo DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive dpkg-reconfigure
keyboard-configuration' to verify what happens when
keyboard-configuration is configured by dpkg.

I think we should consider maybe removing that case too, but I'd like to
know if that is the actual cause of your problem please.
