this is totally done on purpose to avoid circular dependencies, see bug

moreover we are considering introducing an shlibs.local file for ffmpeg
for tightening internal dependencies in the generated binary package
from the source.

both packages have the same motivation: Make dpkg-shlibdeps behave
differently for generated binary packages compared to packages linking
against the library. I acknowledge that this is rather rare and should
be used in general, but for these two cases, I find shlibs.local a
totally reasonable approach.
