In interfaces(5), you mean?

The definition for netmask I find in that section is
    netmask mask
        Netmask (dotted quad or CIDR)

which at a glance would lead me to expect a full CIDR-format address
(e.g., 192.168.1.1/24) here. That would clearly seem redundant with the
address field immediately above, but I don't know of anything else
that's consistent with CIDR notation.

I'm not saying that using just the bit count in that field doesn't work;
I haven't tested it, and I have no particular reason to doubt your
testimony on the subject. But I don't see anything in the documentation
which would lead me to expect it to work.

Is there something I'm missing which should lead me to that expectation?

If I'm understanding what I've read in this thread to date correctly,
he's said that the problem *only* happens at boot time, not when he
issues commands manually.

If correct, that would be a reason why he wanted to know how to make the
boot-time invocations go into the system log, so that he can review what
they report in appropriate detail (and/or share it, for others to
review). It would also be a reason for making the boot-time invocations
fully verbose, at least temporarily.
