In the past there seems to be confusion whether to use the -m option
or the -e option for dpkg-buildpackage when sponsoring packages.

I take it that the correct option is non-of-the-above, and actually

The issue I have with -k, is that if the upload is messed up for any
reason (e.g. forgot -sa when required), it is the sponsored maintainer
who is informed, not the uploader (unless this has changed recently).
