    But, when the 1st new kernel gets installed, it creates the symlinks. That is why I got confused for a minute.

    BTW, I have both Debian Stretch and Buster installed and did not use the swap file during installation.
    When I booted up it mounted the swap partition even though it was not in the /etc/fstab file. But, I added it immediately after installation.

    Yes, some systems do that. I haven't looked closely, but I assume that they create a systemd mount unit to mount swap.
