By definition, there shouldn't be any packages in the archive with this,
because dpkg does not include the local-options when it builds a .dsc:
that's why it's called "local". You'd have to construct a package by
hand, without using dpkg-source.

debian/source/options does get included in the .dsc, but some options
are not allowed to appear there, only in local-options; unapply-patches
is one of them.

dbus in jessie and older had this file in its (gbp-style
unapplied-patches) git repository, if that's any help to you...
