Clarification: Thankfully it doesn't -- it would be another place to
keep up to date with respect to codenames of releases…
(we have it for the manpages, but these are at least not mission-critical)
Its simpler: The Release files tell us which Codename and Suite this
archive is for - if thats different from the one you mentioned in
sources.list you will get this "lovely" warning…
And yes, Christoph is right, something is wrong with stable-updates
as if we look at the current Release file of it  we can see that it says
change Suite to 'stable-updates' and it will work again for everyone who
has 'stable-updates' written in his sources.list.
User with sources.list entries mentioning 'squeeze-updates' doesn't
have a problem with it obviously…
The "normal" stable gets it right with 'stable' and 'squeeze'.
The mentioned debian-security btw, too, through you might notice that
it says 'stable' and 'squeeze' instead of 'stable/security' and alike,
but thats intended - otherwise APT would warn again…
(which kind of make sense, as security is already stable, while updates
want to become part of stable with the next point release -- at least as
far as i have understood it)
