man dpkg-buildpackage isn't very clear cause it says:
"-sa forces the inclusion of  the  original  source;
 -sd  forces  its  exclusion  and  includes only the diff."

So at this moment you think that -s flag is an option for original source, but then, under an other section:
  When dpkg-buildpackage needs to execute GPG or  PGP
  to  sign a source control (.dsc) file or a .changes
  file it will run sign-command"
