This is not the case though, since even if a Files: * field is present,
this warning was triggered.

In newer versions of lintian, this warning has changed, so the
following file:
Upstream-Name: td
Source: http://example.com
License: dog
 This is dog license

Files: *
Copyright: someone
License: other
 This is other license

Now reports
W: cn source: dep5-file-paragraph-reference-header-paragraph dog
(paragraph at line 7)

Which is as far as I see still the same false positive.
