I think I identified the underlying cause and that can be fixed
trivially: just changing a dependency from texlive-math-extra to
texlive-science (plus removing superfluous mktexlsr calls from the
maintainer scripts to avoid future breakage).
texlive-math-extra is a real package in jessie but a virtual package in
stretch, that gives apt a headache and it decides to remove dblatex (and
does it at the wrong time).
That fix should avoid updating the jessie package and avoid needing
something in the release notes :-)
