One way to make dh_strip recognize files that are not in the typical
name pattern is to make it executable. What I do in the mia package,
where plugins have the extension 'mia' is the following: 

In d/rules: 

# dh_strip detects executable files, so make *.mia files executable
then strip then 
# remove the executable flag 

# include "*.mia" files when searching for library dependencies
   dh_shlibdeps -- $(shell find  debian/libmia-2.4-4/ -name "*.mia")


and debian/run_strip is: 
for f in $(find . -name "*.mia"); do chmod 755 $f; done
for f in $(find . -name "*.mia"); do chmod 644 $f; done

Granted it is not the most elegant solution (especially since somewhere
before calling dh_strip the executable flags are actually stripped, but
it does the job. 

Hope that helps,
