Are refering to 

   13.7 Changelog files                                                                                         

   The Debian changelog file (debian/changelog) should explain briefly what
   modifications were made in the Debian version of the package compared to
   the upstream one. Other changes and updates to the package should also
   be documented in this file.


I don't see that this differs substantially in meaning from 5.3.  It still
unclearly implies that upstream-only changes should not be mentioned in the
Debian changelog.

Also note this from 13.7:

   The format of the debian/changelog file is described in
   debian/changelog, Section 5.3.

This could be taken as incorporating 5.3 by reference.
