It is, and quoting /usr/bin/dpkg-buildpackage ...
| -B)	binaryonly=-B; checkbuilddep_args=-B; binarytarget=binary-arch;
| if [ x$sourceonly = x ]; then
| 	withecho debian/rules build 
| 	withecho $rootcommand debian/rules $binarytarget
| fi
... this invokes debian/rules build

Afaict the reason for this is that build-arch and build-all are
optional targets per policy.
