It's definitely a bug in paml.  Arguably dak shouldn't allow the
situation to occur in the archive, but the package is wrong.

This is due to the source package having:

Source: paml
Section: non-free/science
Package: paml-doc
Architecture: all
Section: doc

The binary package should be in non-free/doc.
