It's mentioned in debhelper(7) and it works: only the contents of
dbxml are configured and built, not the copies of Berkeley DB, Xerces
and XQilla that upstream put in the tarball. But I'll switch to
--sourcedirectory after the $@.

So I've found out. Sorry for asking lots of questions, but a full
debuild run on this package is *very* slow on the computer I'm using,
so I prefer to ask rather than experiment.
