  lintian  -L =classification <your-packages-here>

And you will probably see something like:

  C: <pkg> source: debian-build-system other

I.e. most likely a false-positive in lintian.  Once confirmed, please
file a bug against lintian or/and provide a MR on salsa for fixing the bug.

For reference, given that trends.d.n relies solely on a lintian (with a
handful of patches to add a few tags), the issues are most likely in
lintian or in the particular patches (for the latter, please follow up
on the relevant bugs filed by Lucas against lintian to add those tags).
