AFAIK, the standard font file for Nimbus Sans L (aka Helvetica) on
Debian is n019003l.pfb. (This file is part of the gsfonts package,
gsfonts-x11 only adds a symlink in /usr/share/fonts/X11/Type1/ and a
fonts.alias file to make sure the Adobe name is also matched.)

You seem to have the same font in another file, maybe user-installed or
a leftover from earlier days. What do you get with

fc-match -v "Nimbus Sans L" | grep file:

dpkg -S NimbusSanL-Regu.pfb
