"aptitude show libdvdcss2" would show it as installed.

libc6 is one of the most fundamental libraries on your system.  More
important than huge sections of the kernel.  Once upon a time, it was
possible to run an apt upgrade and have libc6 get partially installed, and
leave your system in a completely unusable state.  Particularly, I remember
situations where both libc6 and libc6-i686 were to be updated (libc6-i686
has 686-optimized versions of some parts of libc6) and libc6-i686 would be
updated while libc6 was in its original state.  Recovery was traumatic.  I
took to removing libc6-i686 before doing any upgrade, and reinstalling it

So now, whenever a library is updated that has certain dependencies on
libc6, you'll see these messages - it's just ensuring that the updates to
the library loading configuration get done at safe point.
