There is a bug already filed 

 Date: Fri, 12 May 2000 16:11:44 -0500
 From: Bolan Meek <Bolan.Meek@wcom.com>
 Subject: package links in wrong section
 To: submit@bugs.debian.org

 Package: links
 Version: 0.84-1
 Filename: dists/frozen/main/binary-sparc/net/lins_0.84-1.deb

 dselect->select on Debian 2.2 (frozen: potato) shows this in
 the "net" section.  It should be in "web".

Interestingly it has been marked as done by the maintainer, however on my
system the bug is still present. I am running version 0.92-1

I suppose that the Override file has to be altered to change the section of a
package. Maybe somebody should file a bug against ftp.debian.org

Don't worry  --  shop.
