If dracut is mounting the the /home partition then it is being mounted
before / is mounted RW and thus won't be entered in /etc/mtab by
rc.sysinit.  There is code in rc.sysinit that once the root filesystem
is mounted rw /etc/mtab is updated with the mount information for it
and the other usual filesystems that have been mounted for the initial
boot process, ( /proc, /sys /dev/pts /dev/shm /proc/bus/usb )

Is there a particular reason you want /home mounted before the system
initialization and filesystem check is done?
