Not in Debian, it doesn't. Since policy is about Debian *packages*, and
Debian cannot ship much more than empty dirs under /usr/local, any rpath
inside a Debian package pointing to /usr/local is a major error.
Indeed, rpath is only acceptable for:
1. dynamically loaded modules/plugins
2. libraries that must live outside of ld.so directories
and IMHO any case of (2) probably needs some debian-devel discursion first.
