I'm pretty sure this is still wrong ...

If /etc/mdadm.conf doesn't exist(?) or isn't parsable, map_md_devices
returns -1.  It doesn't set error(), which could be bad, since it
returns -1 from check_fstab which requires you to set error().

No, it doesn't. If augeas can't parse /etc/mdadm.conf, the match will return an empty list, not an error. In that case it follows this code path:

  if (matches[0] == NULL) {
debug(g, "Appliance has MD devices, but augeas returned no array matches "
             "in mdadm.conf");
    return 0;

It returns 0, not -1, and the map has been explicitly set to NULL above.

What it _should_ do is not to call error(), and allow md_map to be
NULL, not returning from check_fstab, but continuing.  Then the other
functions have to be changed to deal with md_map being NULL.

Try creating some guests with /etc/mdadm.conf being
bogus/empty/missing and make sure that inspection can properly handle
them without an error.

I already specifically tested that.
