Well, unless the buildd is running with some demented umask, that's not
happening with webauth. Everything is created with the default umask.

Nearly all of those appear to be this problem. There are a few where the
maintainer really isn't stripping files, but that's much rarer. Look for
any of the packages there that were autobuilt on i386.
If dh_strip makes this an error, ninsei is going to stop being able to
build various packages, which will probably help get this fixed, I guess.
