Indeed, the initrd would need an extra package, like this:

diff --git a/gnu/system/linux-initrd.scm b/gnu/system/linux-initrd.scm

Can you try if it works?

However, we should provide an ‘nfs-utils-static’ package because the
above leads to a very big initrd (the closure of ‘nfs-utils’ is
~200 MiB).
