No, in dak: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=825398.

Basically dak is not ready for source-only uploads and considers any
arch: all package that has not become available at the same time as the
source package as obsolete.  If there are no reverse dependencies, the
arch: all package is removed.

Since libreoffice takes 6-18 hours to build on the buildds, this happens
with every libreoffice upload. :-(
