Indeed. I can tell you one such case by mind (because I created it):

→ apt-cache show wml | egrep '^(Package|Version|Architecture|$)'
Package: wml
Version: 2.4.1ds1-2
Architecture: all

Package: wml
Version: 2.0.12ds1-10+b2
Architecture: amd64

(That's wml in unstable/testing and experimental currently.)
