No, you can't do it like that. Generally the source package is repacked
to remove these first and that tarball is uploaded as the orig.tar.gz.
Many Java packages need to be repacked from .zip anyway, so that's not a
big deal. If you do this is customary to append a '.ds' or similar
suffix to the upstream version.

You could do this, although if you are going down this route, just doing
it in the clean: target is probably sufficient. In any case they are
still shipped in the upstream tarball and dpkg-source ignores missing
files when creating the diff.gz
