can you be more specific on this?
What executable binary you are missing exactly?

The rebuild for stretch-backport is the technically the same build as
for unstable except the build environment, no packages are removed nor
any related changes did happen that would effect a dropping of a binary.

You are talking about binary packages here or what do you mean?
kicad-common is a virtual and transitional package since version 5.0.0.
There are some further notes about KiCad in the Debian wiki.

Sorry, I can't follow you here, l10n support for KiCad is given by the
following MO files for the most recent version in stretch-backports.

The documentation for KiCad is done by dedicated binary packages. Look
for kicad-doc-*


What languages you are missing in which relation?

Have you generated a debdiff between your packages and the packages in
the archive so we can see what you have changed? Or at least a diff off
your working tree against the branch debian/stretch from the packaging
tree on Salsa?
