It's unlikely to be a bug. First, even within Debian this can happen as
the set of allowed keys vary over time and signature can stay around
for years in the archive.

And then the vendor code already does the right thing: each vendor adds
supplementary keyrings on top of the keyrings of the parent distribution.

That said maybe your derivative hasn't implement the require vendor
support in Dpkg::Vendor::<yourvendor> …
