Epackage-installs-apt-sources

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.244. That is the most recent version we know about.

Debian packages should not install files under /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ or install an /etc/apt/sources.list file.

The selection of installation sources is under the control of the local administrator. Packages are generally not allowed to change the administrator's choices.

As a limited exception for the convenience of administrators, packages whose names end in the clearly named -apt-source are permitted to install such files.

Refer to the sources.list(5) manual page for details.
