Standard scripts used by grub-mkconfig do not touch resume= parameter
at all. If it is present, it is either done by distribution-specific
scripts, or simply statically added in a value of
in /etc/default/grub. Some distribution use different parameters here.

I do not know what update-grub2 is or does, but you need to re-create
grub.cfg using grub-mkconfig. If update-grub2 is a wrapper around it,
