Your analysis seems resonable.

In Devuan this package is used directly from Debian without recompilation. In
general for packages in that category, the bug reports should go to Debian's BTS
to be fixed there as the bug will also be present in Debian.

Please could you report to submit@bugs.debian.org? Once you have we can add the
forwarded bug number/URL here.

Thanks.

Mark
