Policy says a different thing:

from /usr/share/doc/debian-policy/upgrading-checklist.txt.gz
      * Localized man pages should either be kept up-to-date with the
        original version or warn that they're not up-to-date, either with
        warning text or by showing missing or changed portions in the
        original language.                                        [12.1]

So you can still ship the not up-to-date manpages but you have to warn
users of their state.
