It's a virtual package with two functions:

* Its only provider is the package that implements the ADDON sequence,
  so build-depending on dh-sequence-ADDON is enough to get it installed

* Mentioning it in your Build-Depends{,-Arch,-Indep} tells debhelper to
  activate the relevant sequence during {all,arch-dep,arch-indep} builds,
  the same as "dh --with ADDON", without having to repeat yourself
