Do you mean that all packages with Priority: standard and their

Correct. That's part of the design. It works well, until reality
changes underneath us like this. :-)

Well, if I am counting right, this is not true for the multi-arch
netinst image :
- 85 packages found in the main section for i386.
- Only 43 packages found in the multi-arch CD image main section.

Is it an exception because a netinst image is not supposed to be used
without a mirror ?

I was under the impression that "netinst" stood for "network installer",
so the image only contains what's essential to bootstrap a standard
system (or greater) from the network (Internet or local mirror).

Netinst images contain everything required to install a functional basic system even without a network.
