More directly: Why is this package given a Debian-native version when
it's clearly not specific to Debian systems?

    You should only use a native Debian package when it is clear that
    the package would only ever be of use in Debian. Even if the
    software is currently only available in Debian, if someone could
    reasonably use the software on another distribution or on another
    operating system, then the package should be non-native.
