The latter, I'll try to reword these occurrences to make that more clear.

That's standard man(1) behaviour, after a full-stop when starting a new
sentence, but not a paragraph, on a new-line. In any case there's many
such separation of sentences all over the dpkg man pages. Or do you
mean something else?

Thanks, I'll fix this.

This seems to be due to the preceding ‘)’, it could be a bug in po4a

Oh, don't worry, just ignore it for now. This is related to KGB, the
equivalent of CIA, to notify on IRC. If the domain persists in being
down for a while I'll notify the admins and disable it from the config.
