debhelper not using debian/<package>/

Why is debhelper using debian/tmp/ as build directory, instead of debian/<package>/?

The debhelper documentation agrees with my experience, that it uses debian/<package>/ by default, but one of my packages is using debian/tmp/, without "-P" or "--tmpdir" options anywhere. Has anyone else experienced this?

It is a kernel module source package; I build it using make-kpkg. I used dh_make to create it. Here it is, FWIW (http://newcgi.sfu.ca/~jdbates/debian/pool/bluetooth-alsa/bluetooth- alsa-source_200412050-1_all.deb)

Is it possible to test for debhelper's build directory in my debian/rules? To use "INSTALL_MOD_PATH=$(DH_BUILDDIR)/", instead of hardcoding "INSTALL_MOD_PATH=$(CURDIR)/debian/$(pmodules)/" or "INSTALL_MOD_PATH=$(CURDIR)/debian/tmp/"?

Many thanks,
