If I understand correctly, it is not the source package but the upstream
tarball worring you?

Don't do the above. Just rename the tarball (and extracted dir) and let
dpkg-source take care of the rest. It's generally not appropriate to go
extracting and messing with the upstream source tarball unless you have
problematically licensed material in it.
