Yes, it looks like a bug in dpkg-shlibdeps. In the Debian Packaging Manual, 
Chapter 12 there's:
"it scans the following files in this order. 
1. debian/shlibs.local
2. /etc/dpkg/shlibs.override
3. /var/lib/dpkg/info/*.shlibs
4. /etc/dpkg/shlibs.default".

But it works without this warning now. Thanks a lot.
