No, any upload go in the suite written in the first line of the
top-most debian/changelog entry, f.e.:
reportbug (4.12.6) unstable; urgency=low
that upload would go into unstable (the default when using 'dhc -r'),
to change that you can use '-D experimental' when calling 'dch' (if
you don't know what it is, install devscripts and then 'man dch'), and
then the upload will go into experimental.
