To be fair, the description for the lsb package in unstable says:
"The intent of this package is to provide a best current practice way
of installing and running LSB packages on Debian GNU/Linux. Its
presence does not imply that we believe that Debian fully complies
with the Linux Standard Base, and should not be construed as a
statement that Debian is LSB-compliant."
And, in fact, last I checked, we were FHS-compatible, but not fully
FHS-compliant (we need to finish getting rid of /usr/doc), and since
the LSB includes the FHS, that may well mean that we're not strictly
LSB-compliant either. We might be LSB-compatible though (if the LSB
defines such a category). The appropriate person to ask for more
details might be the maintainer of the lsb package.
