dch(1) has:

       --local, -lsuffix                                                        
               Add a suffix to the Debian version number for a local build.

... which might be legitimate to ask people to use so that Lintian
ignores it.

But before we spend more energy here instead of on other things;
are there many concrete people actually complaining about this? If
so, where?

Nod, indeed. Including, for example, GitLab instances, etc. etc.
