The original source tarball contains the specified examples directory. However, no examples are installed in any binary packages.

Please use dh_installexamples to install these to the most relevant package, for example by adding the directory name followed by a wildcard to a debian/pkgname.examples file.

Lintian looks for any directory called examples under /usr/share/doc in all binary packages.
