I wonder if it wasn't blank already. All of its contents was supposed to be moved to jessie main archive with last point release and no content should
be there after that.

Packages aren't moved from -updates to (old)stable, they're moved from p-u. Packages only get removed from -updates following manual action from a Release Team member.

so, as I understand it, packages like clamav, spamassassin and others that
are in -updates may not get to main archive with a point release?

Is there anything other needed to get them in?

iirc, the -updates (formerly called volatile) was created to contain
packages that really need updates during distribution lifecycle, just like
antiviruses, spam filters and alike.

They should not be lost.

In the case of jessie, it appears there was still at least an old kernel package in there.

luckily, nothing important.
