Again: thats wrong and thats not what is written in:

"Include all changelog entries since the last version on debian-backports or
since stable if it's the first version. You should do this by passing "-v" to
dpkg-buildpackage. Eg: "debuild -v0.7.5-2", where "0.7.5-2" is the version in
stable. If the package wasn't in stable or backports before you don't have
include the changelog entrys (but you are free to do so)."

If done so the .changes contains several changelog entrys afterwards. 
You only merged all changelogs entrys into the latest entry.
