I am using Lintian v2.5.121 on Sid.

Building from the current GIT master of Bacula via "gbp buildpackage" in
a clean Sid cowbuilder chroot.

lintian command-line is:
lintian --color always -EvIL +pedantic --profile debian/main --info

The output is attached.

It for example matches on debian-common-pgsql postinst4:

set -e
# Automatically added by dh_installdeb/12
dpkg-maintscript-helper dir_to_symlink
/usr/share/doc/bacula-common-pgsql bacula-common 7.0.5\+dfsg-4\~ -- "$@"
# End automatically added section

But this line was not added manually but by dh_installdeb instead via
bacula-common-pgsql.maintscript, as one is supposed to do this.
