That's the menu package. It's neat!
Packages create entries in the menu hierarchy, /usr/lib/menu ... use
'dpkg --listfiles' on each package to see that. The update-menus
command then gets run, which updates the menu files used by window
managers and the like.
It's mentioned in the packaging guides as well, I think.
