The tag is present in Lintian version 2.114.53. That is the most recent version we know about.
We use semantic versions.

release tag in our Git
You can find the detection logic for this version at commit a1e47cb. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check maintainer-scripts/systemctl.
The maintainer script calls systemctl directly. Actions such as enabling
a unit file should be done using
deb-systemd-helper so that they work
on machines with or without systemd. Starting a service should be done via
invoke-rc.d if the service has a corresponding sysvinit script or
deb-systemd-invoke if it does not.
If you are using debhelper, please use the
addon, which is provided by
debhelper (>= 9.20160709~).
