Hm ... if you have "aptitude", then please try "aptitude why udisks", that should give you a reason why udisks2 is kept.

$ aptitude why pmount
i   tdebase-trinity               Hängt ab von tdebase-tdeio-plugins-trinity (>= 4:14.0.5~pre36-0debian9.0.0+6)  
i A tdebase-tdeio-plugins-trinity Empfiehlt    udisks2 | udisks | pmount    

TDE can live without udisks2 | udisks | pmount, just mounting/unmounting will not work.
