To be honest, the chance is close to 0, at least at first glance.

Updates for stable releases are usually only accepted for security
fixes, or for other critical problems.

For libnetpacket-perl there's not a single bug report in any suite,
so it looks like there's nothing to fix in stable ...

If there's a critical problem in Net::Packet 1.3.0, an update might
be possible; "useful fixes and enhancements" are probably not enough
for stable-update.

But in this case, an upload to stable-backports might be an option.
