First, this wasn't a request for the debconf templates (there are none),
this is the program translation.

Second, I get errors from msgfmt with the translation for gpe-expenses:

$ msgfmt -c --statistics po/fr.po 
po/fr.po:247: number of format specifications in 'msgid' and 'msgstr'
does not match
msgfmt: found 1 fatal error
54 translated messages.

#. Translators: Add or subtract dots to keep the translated lines
aligned vertically
#: ../src/gpe-expenses.c:253
#, c-format
msgid ""
" --debug logs to......: %s\n"
msgstr ""
" Fichiers journaux pour --debug... : %s/%s\n"

The extra '%s' has been removed.

No, there is no debia/po directory - program translations like this one
live in $(top_srcdir)/po/

(debian-i18n carries upstream translations as well as debconf
translations - maybe you used the wrong template for your bug
