Packaging shared libraries correctly is not trivial, and you should not
expect a tool like dh_make to do everything for you.  Its output is useful
as a starting point; it is not intended to replace a human creating the
package.  You will _always_ need to edit the debian/ directory produced by
dh_make in order to produce a sane package.
