[There is nothing special about Debian and architecture dependent files]

Dependent is any file which cannot be used on a different hardware
architecture. Compiled 'c' code is architecture dependent.
Python compiled source (.pyc, .pyo), text files of any sort and almost all
kinds of data files like sounds, images or videos do behave the same,
regardless the hardware architecture they are installed on: thus they are
architecture independent.

I tryed any conbination of setup.py options to make it work, but i was not
succesful: that led me to think this feature was not considered.
