But independently of using initrd or not, `systemd-vconsole-setup` is run
by the service `systemd-vconsole-setup.service`, which in turn is WantedBy
`sysinit.target`. So all should be automatic...

Can you show us the output of
$ systemctl status systemd-vconsole-setup.service
$ systemctl show systemd-vconsole-setup.service
