yes, this is an ongoing transition, and a lot of packages will need to
be rebuilt. This will not be handled by sourceful uploads, but rather
with binNMUs. I've just asked on #debian-release:

19:55 <siretart> adsb: thanks for hinting jack in! do you already have a
schedule for the binNMUs?
20:00 <adsb> siretart: np. Not yet, looking at it is on my to-do list
for the next couple of days

so yes, you're right, and the problem is being worked on with the help
of the release team.
