Turns out I am doing that too on my machine, tbh I have no idea where is
that coming from, I have that hook since ages.

Apparently sbuild has been doing that since 2010.

I will add it to pbuilder too, on the basis that if sbuild has been
using it for 7 years, and several other developer had in pbuilder, it
must be harmless :)
