Yes, a few. Notably elogind, eudev, consolkit2, some themes, refractainstaller,
choose-init, and several others that still have the (very old?) +vuaN numbering.

The problem with using +devuanN in the version as the test is that these package
reports would then be sent to Debian which would be unpopular!
