The choice of modules in the D-I kernel is shorter (for size issues)
so it's very likely that adding this module could help.

I see this in debian/installer/modules/input-modules:
hid
usbhid
hid-apple ?
hid-belkin ?
hid-microsoft ?
hid-logitech ?
hid-monterey ?
hid-sunplus ?
hid-cherry ?
synaptics_usb ?
wistron_btns ?

Dunno what the "?" means but anyway, I see no hid-logitech-dj here...

I suspect it was named hid-logitech and got renamed to
hid-logitech-dj

Kernel team?

It means not to fail if the module does not actually exist, which is
useful when the availability depends on the arch.

'?' means it's not an error if the module is missing (usually because
it's only built in some configurations). Not sure that actually makes
sense here, as any USB device can be used with any USB host.

They are two different drivers.

Anyway, sorry for the delay; this will be fixed shortly.
