Yes, because on backports kodi only does "dh_strip", not "dh_strip
--dbg-package=...". So neither dbg nor dbgsym packages will be created
in backports at all. So no upgrade issues from jessie-backports to
stretch because of that.

Above code is the same as completly wiping the override_dh_strip, as I
do in wine. If this is applied in the main packaging it has the benefits
of not requiring a code change from stretch to jessie-backports, at the
cost of possibly hiding real problems in sid/stretch. But from a pure
backports perspective I don't see any problems.
