mod-php actually is provided by the php7.4 package (the aformentioned
bug needed a code fix to a postinst script in php7.4 -- so an entirely
separate codepath).

mod-fcgid looks like it comes from the libapache2-mod-fcgid package (not
from apache2), and that package is just sync'd from Debian.

I don't spot a matching bug for this issue in Debian, but looking at the
ubuntu bugs for this source package, there's about half a dozen relating
to installation issues with that package.  LP: #1266400 appears to be
caused by dir perm's, the other bugs aren't analyzed yet but wouldn't
surprise me if some are dupes.  It makes me suspect that whatever this
issue is, it might be a longstanding but corner case issue.

Anyway, I think your call to keep it in our subscription queue for now
is good.
