Hello Sam!

Could you point out some difference that you feel incorrect?
It would help much for maintaining the Debian package.

This has been discussed already – that package replaces the maildrop component with the standalone version of maildrop. This doesn't work correctly, or rather it won't work without some additional configuration. That, for all intents and purposes, is maildrop getting installed with some standalone mail server, and maildrop needs to be set up to use the same configuration as the mail server, in terms of where the mail accounts are, who owns them, and each one's userid and groupid. It's no longer just something that get me dropped in, and work automatically.
