Not easy.

To create the base raw image during the build we are using grml-debootstrap. (Creating base raw images is not a trivial process, so a specialized tool for that is being used.)

I do not think grml-debootstrap supports such a feature. Please consider posting a feature request against upstream against grml-debootstrap and/or implement that feature upstream.

Alternatively do the same as above with image-bootstrap. The alternative project and upstream might be quicker to implement it. Although that may likely create more follow up tasks. We do not have a ticket yet for porting Whonix build process from using the old grml-debootstrap to using the more modern (but not packaged for Debian) image-bootstrap. It would have to be checked, if image-bootstrap can already do everything that we require using grml-debootstrap for at the moment.
