What package? All files in a package should be owned by root or possibly one 
of the statically allocated user ids. Files owned by uid >= 1000 is a serious 
bug, if that's what you're talking about. The system administrator can use 
dpkg-statoverride to prevent dpkg from resetting the ownership and/or 
permissions of files included in the package each time the package is 
upgraded.
