the d/control is generated from d/control.in and the contents are crafted based on number of supported PHP version, as the default PHP version and supported versions might differ between Debian, Ubuntu and other distributions.

It might be just fine to replace Debian with a substvar though, patches are welcome, php-defaults is hosted on salsa.d.o.
