FWIW: dh_strip DTRT when DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS contains nostrip (see its
manpage). One usually has to inspect both:
 - debian/rules to see whether configure/make flags are triggering a
   “normal” or a “debug” build (see cmake's Release, RelWithDebInfo,
    Debug types for CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE, for example).
 - upstream build system. Some are doing stripping unconditionally, so
   you'd have to apply a patch to either get rid of stripping, or to
   make it conditional.
