If you only find them in the place they are supposed to be taken from,
and that archive claims a common copyright and license for all it
contents, it would be a good bet to assume they are made by those who
made the package (and thus claim copyright for it. I'm no lawyer, but
i guess believing people cannot be a problem if you have no hints or
reasons to mistrust them). Only make sure that your debian/copyright
files lists their copyright (a little more of additional information
cannot hurt, though).

Actually 10.1 recommends to have different compile flags depending on
DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS. Having an easy no-brainer way for people to compile
your package with full debug information (i.e. -O0 -g and no stripping)
makes it much easier for people to file meaningful bug reports.
So unless your build system needs major patching to archieve this, I'd
strongly suggest it.
