Package: debian-policy
Version: 3.5.9.0
Severity: normal

Section 11.2 says 

	strip --strip-unneeded your-lib

Lintian, however, complains if the sections .comment or .note are
present, which strip doesn't think are unneeded.

I don't know whether this is a bug in policy, strip, or lintian, but
since Debian's "install -s" and dh_strip both use the additional options

	--remove-section=.comment --remove-section=.note

I think that it's a policy bug.
