The values are taken from @activated (which is logged).

AFAIS the code goes through all potential devices (using kernel device
names), mounts them and looks for a fstab. The root device is then added
to @activated while the other devices and takes from the found fstab.
Thus the root device uses the kernel device name.

The code seems indeed fragile and broken, e.g. the mount-by detection
in AddToTargetMap does not handle by-path or by-uuid. I suppose the code
only gets a bug fix once in a while but otherwise no attention.
