The site says “These pages are intended to show additional information to
http://buildd.debian.org or more exactly it is basically the same
information, but shown in a different, maybe better readable form.”

You might want to clarify.

mentors.debian.net is "official" since it's the only implementation of that
service. Yet it's not in debian.org.

So IMO the domain name is not really a reliable criteria.

buildd.net is neither a debian.net nor a debian.org so its status is not
immediately obvious.
