Yes that seems a common practise in Mandrake.

I'm a contributer to Mandrake and I cannot change the appearance of thousands
of packages so that there are no devel sub packages. Also as I'm no coder I
can't say what's wrong in the subpackage code, other softwares don't seem to
have this problem. I suggest the subpackage developers look into this.
