OK, I was probably conflating this with some issues I had with various
files when I was mirroring using debmirror (before switching to ftpsync,
which should follow possibly incompatible changes on the archive side).

Looking at my local mirror it appears these files are available for each
  Contents-$arch.gz → symlinks to main/Contents-$arch.gz

then for i in each of main, contrib, and non-free we have:

so it would probably be just a matter of indexing files matching the
last pattern to get proper udeb support if Contents files are indeed
what packages.debian.org uses.

(I'll now look into apt-file which likely needs some patching based on
the findings mentioned above, but that's no longer a topic for -www@.)

Thanks for reading so far.
