OK, plain weird.

Things you can try:

(1) After the dpkg-statoverride --list command in the postinst, try
    doing a "cat /var/lib/dpkg/statoverride".  And on second thoughts,
    you could add this command to the preinst as well to see what is
    going on.

(2) Without doing a dpkg, set up the SE Linux permissions exactly as
    se_dpkg does, then do a dpkg-statoverride --list to see what

Something clearly is amiss somewhere.
