These loads are in ssh.c and are gated by "if
(options.hostbased_authentication)" and do include certificates.  I'd

 - checking that HostbasedAuthentication isn't disabled someplace, eg,
a user config file ( check the effective setting with "ssh -G
yourserver | grep hostbased").

 - checking that the public portion of host keys are readable by
unprivileged users (since this is done in the client).
