Yes, it does contain them. This has already been explained to you several
times. You can see this easily by examining the archive with tar in a woody
chroot. stable tar does seem to extract the archive OK; however, the
presence of the spurious PaxHeaders.8890 directory confuses dpkg-source.

That belief is incorrect. If you repack the .orig.tar.gz using tar, it will
fix you prroblem.
