I'm on Stretch, tried your experiment, and encountered no difficulty.

curty@einstein:~$ convert -list format | grep -i xwd
      XWD* XWD       rw-   X Windows system window dump (color)

It would be surprising if your output were different (I guess I mean if
you obtained no output whatsoever) as I suppose our ImagicMagick
compile-time configs are identical, unless you've left out crucial
