Isn't you saying "i havent been able to use sfdisk [to recreate a broken
partition table layout] without using --force" exactly what describes a
problem ('issue') in the Ubuntu Installer partition layouts?

The fact that you got used to hacking(!) your way through it, dumping
partition tables to textfiles, manually changing boundaries to
incorrect(!) values and forcing(!) a tool to write the broken layout to
disk does not make this 'normal operation', it indicates a problem that
should be fixed. Amiright?

So, thanks for confirming the problem with Ubuntu Installer partition
tables, now let's focus on finding out how to report this / get this
