dpkg-buildpackage definitely doesn't have (at least, I don't see it in the manpage) anything as simple and straightforward as sbuild's "--binNMU" option.
But I'd be interested in hearing recipes for doing this with

Are you saying that you recommend I use a chroot?  For a package I'm building just for myself (for just one machine)?
Hmm... I've never set up a chroot for building packages and it seems like this would be a lot of work, and a lot of disk space (my HDs are small by todays standards) for very little benefit (in my situation).
If it turns out there's more than one way to do this, I think I'd probably prefer a method that doesn't require a chroot.
