I don't know for sure why it didn't end up in there but I suspect it's due
to there being no armhf binary of the current unstable version (at least
there doesn't appear to be one).

It is on 'unreleased' suite due to a dpkg bug preventing to bootstrap
armhf with multistrap (uses multiple repositories for bootstrapping).
A fixed dpkg will be in 'unstable' suite as soon as its built as it
has already been uploaded a new version with the fix in it.
Does debian-ports.org remove binaries from unstable if a newer version is uploaded to unreleased or something? because there has certainly been a dpkg in armhf unstable in the past but there doesn't seem to be right now.

You might want to read the bug report as it will hint you on how you
can easily bootstrap with an alternative to debootstrap, multistrap:

Kind regards,
