mkarchroot also copies over any specified pacman.conf.
Or to be more accurate, it utilizes arch-nspawn which does so.

The pacman.conf will get used both for configuring the initial pacstrap,
and getting copied into the chroot for later use.

IMHO this is reasonable behavior for mkarchiso to emulate.
