Yes, and no. One debian "source" package may create 1 or more binary
packages. For instance, Debian has at least two sudo packages (sudo
and sudo-ldap) -but only one source package. Take a look here:

(Also, Debian/Ubuntu also create -dev packages for headers and
development libraries, which FreeBSD ports does not (THANK GOD!))
