No, they use the distribution for which the binary-NMU was scheduled

Steffen already talked to me about this. At some point in the past it
was decided to use etch-skolelinux as name and it would be a bit of work
to change it to terra at this point. If you're OK with not using
bin-NMUs for this cycle, I would prefer to leave it as it is. For your
next release, we can use a proper name, which would allow for binNMUs.
