I think there's something more fundamentally wrong here.  If this is a
regular shared library, not detached debugging symbols, it's in the wrong
directory.  The *only* thing that should be in /usr/lib/debug is detached
debugging symbols.  (There's a lintian check for that as well; I'm not
sure why it's not triggering -- maybe I'm misunderstanding what's going

If you're shipping a debugging version of the shared library that's a full
shared library in its own right because building with debugging changes
the library, then yes, you'll need to override a warning about the package
name.  But it should be in /usr/lib.
