This is only a problem with the old version of sbuild in use on the
buildds.  The version in unstable has used the apt inside the chroot
for well over two years.  The patches to enable it do exist in the GIT
repo, and could be trivially ported to the sbuild in use on the
buildds.  In fact, the unstable sbuild even has an --arch option to
specify the build architecture, and will select the appropriate chroot
accordingly.
