I assumed NoExtract should have been enough
Correct! Or are we missing something?
Oddly, using only NoExtract caused pacman to remove the usr/bin/sh symlink, replacing it with nothing. (Using both NoUpgrade and NoExtract seems to work fine.)
Perhaps it's a local oddity on my installation, but I admit I didn't fiddle with it for more than 5 minutes. I very likely overlooked something.

Same here. With only NoExtract, I linked /bin/sh to dash, reinstalled bash, and /bin/sh was gone. With both NoExtract and NoUpgrade, I did the same and /bin/sh was still a link to dash.
My bad, until now I'm using NoExtract for files I don't want to have, I wasn't aware that a file or link we want to have gets lost.
