Policy does mandate them, but in the copyright file, not the package
description.

        13.6 Copyright information

        [...]
        In addition, the copyright file must say where the upstream
        sources (if any) were obtained, and should explain briefly what
        modifications were made in the Debian version of the package
        compared to the upstream one.
        [...]
