This is not a forked package and Devuan uses Debian's packages directly without

man7/systemd-stub.7 is contained in bin:systemd[1]. So you have uncovered a
missing dependency: systemd-boot-efi should depend on systemd.

In principle, this should be reported to Debian's BTS to be fixed. However, if
it was fixed in Debian, systemd-boot-efi would become unavailable in Devuan as
the systemd package and its rdepends are banned and removed by amprolla. That
may not be what you want to achieve.

The choice is yours.
