get the source package (apt-get source) and just edit
plugins/libburnia/burn-libburn.c then

george at sid:/tmp/brasero-3.4.1$ dpkg-source --commit 
dpkg-source: info: local changes detected, the modified files are:
Enter the desired patch name: libburn-cd-sao
dpkg-source: info: local changes have been recorded in a new patch: 

The modification is already applied, thus build with:

george at sid:/tmp/brasero-3.4.1$ dpkg-buildpackage

On my sid, these are as expected:

# ldd /usr/bin/xorriso | grep libisofs
        libisofs.so.6 => /usr/lib/libisofs.so.6 (0x00007f913488b000)

# ldd /usr/lib/brasero3-1/plugins/libbrasero-libisofs.so | grep libisofs
        libisofs.so.6 => /usr/lib/libisofs.so.6 (0x00007f2945053000)

# ldd /usr/bin/xorriso | grep libburn
