No, you can use bam@debian.org in $DEBEMAIL, but in that case you should
also either set your gecos data (/etc/passwd) to include your name, or set
$DEBFULLNAME to it. dh_make's manual page says so pretty clearly.

The behaviour you're describing works in bug(1), but that seems to be more
of an accident than a design decision... and reportbug has replicated
dh_make's behaviour, according to the manual page.
