In this case it does as package doesn't have complex stuff but when
dealing with packages using arch dependent or C++ functions it is really
difficult to handle it just with dpkg-gensymbols (I'm not saying
impossible but just too much work). pkg-kde-tools nicely handles this. 

On CDBS I can include symbolfiles.mk which overrides the path to make
pkg-gensymbols called during dh_makeshlibs. But sadly this is not easy
to be done with dh only way I can think is override dh_makeshlibs call
and manually call pkgkde-gensymbols but that is too much for this simple
package where dpkg-gensymbols works fine.
