Yes this is a known issue and we are currently waiting for an upload
of dh-python to avoid automatic replacement of pylint by pylint3 when
on python3 before pushing those changes further.
There were several discussions already on the subject on the
debian-python list but as long as dh-python is still automatically
replacing pylint by pylint3 there's not much the reverse deps can
really do afaik.
