  The Section is taken from the package's metadata in the FTP archive,
which is stored in /var/lib/dpkg/status  You can see this by running
"dpkg -s flightgear".

  Menu entries are stored in /usr/share/menu and ... um ... some other
place in /usr/share for Gnome-specific menu entries.

  There is no technical relationship between menu entries and sections.
Normally a maintainer who created menu entries for a game would put
them in the Games section, but obviously this can't be done
automatically :-).
