No, that's not true; packages that are installed at the beginning of a
build run are removed at the end. The main difference between pbuilder
and sbuild is the fact that sbuild uses an existing chroot on which it
works (or even builds in your "main" system if you have no chroot
configured), while pbuilder creates a clean chroot environment based on
a tarball with the required files before beginning a build, which it
removes entirely afterwards.

Fun will now commence
