These libraries are only used to build other packages without an
internet connectivity as required by the Debian policy. But in a normal
use case, the libraries are downloaded from the Maven Central repository
as usual. You are free to use the plugins packaged by Debian of course,
but you'll have to install them manually as you did. A metapackage would
be too broad and would probably pull all the Java library packages in
Debian, that doesn't seem desirable.
This is the maintainer address of Debian's Java team
