Yeah, that was my initial reaction as well. And I'm not sure where
the buildsystem and sequence behavior is supposed to be documented, or
whether debhelper maintainers would recommend doing so, so I've CCed
them in case they have any input.

OTOH, dh_golang(1p) already contains a brief note about the golang
buildsystem, so perhaps that man page is not such a bad idea after
all? Also because that's the entry point for the command, but yeah
as mentioned above I also see why it feels wrong.
