Ahh yes, that would be because when you boot from a volume, no image is specified.

I will get this fixed, thanks.

if booted from volume, use string from image
If cloud servers in openstack are booted with a volume as their root
partition, they do not have an image assigned to them, so they won't
have an image id.  In these cases just pass the string from node.image
to the image information about that machine.

Fixes saltstack#47766
