No, actually all packages seem to take advantage of this.  Look at how
often build logs get updated on buildd.debian.org and how little time
it takes after upload for the packages to start building.

It was kind of neat; I uploaded something last night and when it
dinstalled today, all architectures installed along with my original
upload besides arm and m68k.

This is great for non-i386 users.  Although it does mean that using
i386 users as a buffer to find all those critical bugs no longer works
particularly well.
