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.
