For what it's worth, on my system -- which was built using glibc 2.29 with
branch updates through 2019-05-03 and otherwise unmodified -- the
/etc/nsswitch.conf file does not contain any "db" references at all. Full
text is:

passwd: files
group: files
shadow: files
hosts: files dns
networks: files
protocols: files
services: files
ethers: files
rpc: files

Presumably, it was installed this way because at the time glibc was
compiled there was a minimal set of packages available. I haven't looked at
the source carefully enough to determine whether that's actually the case,
but it seems a reasonable conjecture.

Anyway, I bet that's why I don't see the same error.
