I believe there is a dh_installemacsen tool, but it may not be doing
exactly the right thing at the moment:


And to complicate things further, the "right thing" is currently
changing as I try to fix some problems in post 2.0

That said, I don't know that dh_installemacsen does anything about the
install/remove scripts, and in fact, it might be hard to do anything
that would reliably cover all packages (whose install behaviors/tools
probably vary).
