Those remain unchanged (unless the maintainer decide to change the way
they are generated...). It's possible that some maintainers care less about
shlibs once they added support of symbols files... they could decide to
use dh_makeshlibs -V instead of providing the minimal version that should
be needed.

I haven't made any extra-test for udebs, however in the dpkg-shlibdeps
code, symbols files are only looked up if ($package_type eq "deb"). So
if dpkg-shlibdeps has the "-tudeb" parameter, the dependency generation
should remain unchanged.
