For unstable, yes. The stable package is still broken.

That's an artefact of how builds for suites with "overlays" (i.e. pu /
tpu) are displayed. If one actually looks at the archive:

mariadb-client-10.0 | 10.0.25-0+deb8u1 | stable     | powerpc
mariadb-client-10.0 | 10.0.27-0+deb8u1 | stable     | amd64, arm64, armel, armhf, i386, mips, mipsel, ppc64el, s390x
