Would the /usr location be determined when the initramfs is created,
or would it determine the location at runtime via /etc/fstab? Just
wanted to make sure it is the latter.

By label? Is that assuming /usr location can be guessed by the label?
That would not work on a lot of setups. Even if a mountpoint in label
was used, that does not account for multiple disks attached, all with
Linux installs on them.

Or by by-label do you mean because /etc/fstab is being used, possibly
with a label in the entries (I use by-uuid entries) that the correct
one will be chosen?
