The tag is present in Lintian version 2.108.13. That is the most recent version we know about.
The symbols file for this package does not contain a
Build-Depends-Package meta-information field.
This field specifies the name of the
-dev package associated
to the library and is used by
dpkg-shlibdeps(1) to make sure
that the dependency generated is at least as strict as the
corresponding build dependency.
This is useful as allows packages to not hardcode this information multiple times.
Note that the format of
deb-symbols(5) files requires that the
* Build-Depends-Package: line should start in column one of
the file and not be indented to align with the symbols themselves.
Please do not use the placeholder
development package for your shared library must be stated explicitly.
Please refer to Debian Policy Manual section 188.8.131.52, the deb-symbols(5) manual page, the dpkg-shlibdeps(1) manual page, https://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/maint-guide/advanced.en.html#librarysymbols, and Bug#944047 for details.
