fwiw, there *was* such a lintian check, which was removed as the section 1/8 division is not exactly the same as the bin/sbin division. At least last time I can find it being discussed, the man-db maintainer agreed with not having the check (see #348864, with which I've just merged this bug).

In fact, that log appears to include a piuparts maintainer arguing that piuparts(1) is correct despite the program being in /sbin. ;-)
