As far as I have used Debian (from 1.2 onwards), home directories have
always been setgid by default.
The following appears in /etc/adduser.conf:
# The USERGROUPS variable can be either "yes" or "no". If "yes" each
# created user will be given their own group to use as a default, and
# their home directories will be g+s. If "no", each created user will
# be placed in the group whose gid is USERS_GID (see below).
