The SDK explicitly includes various gcc-runtime packages (including
libstdc++) via packagegroup-core-standalone-sdk-target, whereas an
image will only include libstdc++ if something else in the image has a
runtime dependency on it (e.g. a c++ application, etc).

Not directly. You could add packagegroup-core-standalone-sdk-target to
the image, but then you'd get the corresponding -dev packages too
(header files, etc). Your best bet may be to add libstdc++ plus any
other individual packages to the image as you find you need them.
