After my investigation, I can reproduce your situation and find
that a priority of libfreeamp-alsa is optional though priorities
of ALSA packages are extra.
To check whether this information is correct, you can change the
following section in your
and do apt-get dist-upgrade.
Whether or not, this is a policy violation. A priority of libfreeamp-alsa
should be extra.
