In a couple more words: the problem is, you (OP) are trying to make a *source* override fix a lintian warning for the *binary* package. When Lintian gives a warning about a source package, it prefixes it with sourcepackagename source: ... And in your case, the warning is for the *binary* package, so it is: binarypackagename: ... Thus, the source overrides will not affect it; as Sven Joachim said, you need to provide a file that will be installed as part of the binary package. You may install it into /usr/share/lintian/overrides/ "by hand", but it will be much easier to just drop a file named binarypackagename.lintian-overrides (well, in your case that is kstars-data-extra-tycho2.lintian-overrides) into the debian/ directory at package build time and invoke dh_lintian.
