dpkg --build and empty directories

I suppose, as usual, I am late to this party, and have only just
discovered that dpkg doesn't include empty directories in debian/tmp in
the contents of the .deb file. Am I expected to manage these directories
in the postinst and prerm scripts, or should I just touch a .keepme file
into those directories before building the package?
