I like the explicit chgrp style because it explicitly documents all the
permission variations between dh_fixperms's defaults in debian/rules
rather than split between debian/rules and the upstream build system.
If you as a maintainer think like I do and believe that's actually an
improve to your package,
"papering over" fakeroot bugs but happening to improve things in other
seems like a fine thing to do.
