Sorry, netinsts are special - they only contain the installer and the
base system and a *very* limited set of extra packages that are
hand-configured.

The base system will end up overlapping a little with Priority:
standard (the 43 you've seen). That's all. You still get a basic
useful system with a netinst only, but it won't have all of "Standard"
included.
