So you obviously have non-sarge lines.

No. 'apt-cache policy' tells you not only which package versions are
available but also their source and which one apt prefers over the
others. You can have unstable lines in your sources.list but still have
apt ignore them until you force it to use them (e.g. via '-t unstable').
