when apt grants Release file information?

Dear Apt Team,

I'm sorry to bother but I couldn't find answer to my question anywhere,
so I've decided to ask you.

To make story short: I apt-src-ed some of the packages with patches I
need, then I install them into local repository which resides as another
component in debian mirror:
deb file:/net/debmirror/share/debmirror/debian/ sid main contrib non-free rumba

I placed Release file into 
which contains:
Components: rumba
Date: Tue, 05 Apr 2005 15:50:43 UTC
Description: Packages packaged/compiled at RUMBA Labs
Label: rumbarep
Origin: rumba
Suite: unstable

now when I try to pin package in /etc/apt/preferences like
Package: sip4
Pin: release l=rumbarep
Pin-Priority: 1001

it doesn't do any good:
root@ravana[2] /etc/cfengine/files>strace -fF -o /tmp/11 apt-get -V install --reinstall --print-uris sip4
Reading Package Lists... Done

Do you want to continue? [Y/n]
'file:/net/debmirror/share/debmirror/debian/pool/main/s/sip4-qt3/sip4_4.2.1-1_i386.deb' sip4_4.2.1-1_i386.deb 153986 9a03f43005cd3c73b472c1803f962e75

in the strace file -- there is no line about reading Release files
for repositories... so when does it really grants all Release files

Thank you in advance
