No, and yes. Meaning that I most definitely didn't expect it, but I
confirm your observations. And I am running Guix System, so it's not
related to your Guix-under-Debian installation.

In fact, when I saw your mail, it reminded me of similar issues I had
noticed in the past but never taken the time to explore in more depth.

When trying to analyze this in more detail, I noticed that emacs-guix
runs guile 2.2, whereas guix itself used guile 3.0. That shouldn't make
a difference (my understanding is that the current Guix source code
works with both Guile releases), but it's a bit surprising as well.
