Got some help in irc.
That grub.cfg in EFI/debian is created by the grub-efi-amd64-signed
package. Removal of that package reverts to the old behavior -
grub-install on devuan makes EFI/devuan without its own grub.cfg and grub
menu comes up normally.

We can block that package or we can figure out how to make a signed
bootloader for devuan.
