Maybe I'm not understanding the bug's evaluation but it seems to say

It is. However, bootadm(1M) infers the existence of boot archives from the existence of /boot/solaris/bin/create_ramdisk. If we remove the latter from a zone, then bootadm(1M) won't try to update boot archives in the zone's root filesystem. Changing package variants during ipkg p2v should remove /boot/solaris/bin/create_ramdisk and thus prevent bootadm(1M) from updating ipkg-branded zones' boot archives.


OK, thanks for the clarification.  I just checked the pkg metadata
and change-variant will work properly to address this:

% pkg contents -m | egrep create_ramdisk
file 5e6129cf9f1b34c37c0bd34c2c1feb841dbc9436 chash=0e9054d31e87beecb9eda2e28f70c1ab443ef878 group=sys mode=0555 owner=root path=boot/solaris/bin/create_ramdisk pkg.csize=5148 pkg.size=14675
