Apparently not. But for anyone searching through the archives, this
appears to be a problem with sfdisk. I was using it because it has so
many options. It looks "newer" so it must be better, right? Not
necessarily. I could repeat the same process over and over, and it was
hit or miss whether the usb key would actually be bootable. I decided to
use fdisk later and that created a bootable partition 100% of the time.
