Those tags are in the binary package, not the source package. See:

It's saying that you are installing a license file into

Unless there is some clause in the license requiring that it be
present there, we usually use the debian/copyright files to be the one
source of all copyright information of a package. If your copyright
info is in debian/copyright, you don't have to install the COPYING,
LICENSE, and LICENSE.txt files at all.

something like dh_install -XLICENSE would do to make sure you aren't
installing it.
