The BTS looks at the newest know version to decide the source <-> binary
mapping. If the mapping is different in unstable and experimental, the one
from experimental will be used (because the version is higher). That's what's
happening here (libasan5 is built by gcc-9 in experimental).

It might be better to prefer the mapping from unstable over the one from
experimental, even though that will be wrong in some other cases. I don't know
if it's realistic to have the mapping depend on the version information in the
