Is there even an override file on security.debian.org, or uses it
the priority from the packages?

I'll talk to the ftp team and see what's going on...

That is https://bugs.debian.org/867668.

Yup. That's just been confirmed in #debian-ftp:

2018-11-04 13:41 GMT < waldi> found it. only new overrides are synced, not existing updated

There *are* overrides in place, they're just incorrect wrt those for
the main archive.

David: thanks for your report, it's been very helpful in pointing out
this subtle (and well-buried!) problem. Hopefully we'll see a fix
shortly.

Thank you, and everyone involved, for pursuing it.  :-)


(I will assume that no bug report needs to be filed at this point.)
