You are required to list dependencies on 'required' packages.

You are not required to list dependencies on 'Essential' packages (those
marked Essential: yes).

(coreutils *is* 'Essential' so you are correct in that you're not
required to list that dependency, but from what I could see you had the
wrong reason)
