Well util linux is great for tools when booting or chroot, but why is  
it so late in your final system build in ch6?

The problem is that  ch6 eudev is after util-linux.

Has nothing to do with util-linux needing to be in temp system.
You also have to be careful where you put util linux in your build for  
test suite results. I was also seeing in CLFS we have iana-etc after  
util-linux and that affects test suite failures. As long as you have  
Util linux before udev, and after iana-etc, should be fine in most
