Evidently not.

I was surprised as well.

Seems it is because we are in a middle of a recompilation, where this 
can happen.  I.e. it is technically possible to update a subset of 
libraries without all being recompiled - but if all machinery and checks 
works as intended such misaligned scenario is not permitted to reach a 
stable release.

For Pandoc, even if it only happens temporarily, it still reveals a 
problem of the package having an ABI towards filters that is currently 
not tracked at the Debian packaging level.
