It is debhelper (or/and your debian/rules file) and not
dpkg-buildpackage causing this issue.
  Have you checked whether it installs everything into
debian/liblmmin-dev/ rather than debian/tmp/?

Also, it is a release goal for Debian to get rid of ".la" files, so you
should not include them in a new package.
