I suppose Built-Using on a -dev package lists source package versions
that the -dev package is known to build/pass tests with, which is
probably useful information. But it's not the information for which
policy says Built-Using is to be used:

"Some binary packages incorporate parts of other packages when built
but do not have to depend on those packages. Examples include linking
with static libraries or incorporating source code from another
package during the build. In this case, the source packages of those
other packages are a required part of the complete source (the binary
package is not reproducible without them).

A Built-Using field must list the corresponding source package for any
such binary package incorporated during the build..."
