By putting the team in uploaders or in maintainers, you indicate your
preference. There is no need to maintain a LowThresholdNmu page or

I don't consider a team upload the same as an NMU, as we are a team and
we work together. A team policy would be addressed to members of the
teams and not all DDs. However, it is true that the spirit of it is the

Team uploads can be different as they would require the use of our git

Also, it looks like the NMU policy does not apply when you are in the
uploaders, which is the case for us. For example, you subscribe to
LowThresholdNmu and it does not appear in the tracker page for
golang-golang-x-sys, which you maintain:
 - https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/golang-golang-x-sys
