After latest mkinitcpio.conf.pacnew hit, reviewing differences I found the example given for mdadm setup still references the old mdadm module and not the current mdadm_udev specified at The current mkinitcpio.conf contains:

## This setup assembles a pata mdadm array with an encrypted root FS.
## Note: See 'mkinitcpio -H mdadm' for more information on raid devices.
# HOOKS=(base udev block mdadm encrypt filesystems)

Nit, but the comment should be updated to mdadm_udev to avoid potential confusion.
