Could you elaborate a bit more what you actually did?
Maybe attach the used configuration?
apt-ftparchive release $dir > $dir/Release
works fine here and doesn't produce the output you provide.
The output looks more like from the generate command…
apt-ftparchive considers btw also the "normal" APT config files
now, so you might want to check there if conflicting options are
set. Especially FileMode settings would be interesting…
