I don't know exactly how the Debian package hooks bash-completion into
user profiles, but if the package uses the generic profile.d
scriptlet, see bash-completion README:

| The profile.d script provides a configuration file hook that can be
| used to prevent loading bash_completion on per user basis when it's

| completion for other purposes.
