I was hoping to find some ground truth for what comes with the .deb packages and how they are built.

bloom is the tool in ROS which generates the Debian control files based on the metadata available in the package manifest.

ros_buildfarm is the Python package which drives the buildfarm which actually produces the .deb files. But uultimately it simply invokes gbp buildpackage and apt-src build.

It seems the ROS2 config is here:

That repository doesn't contain any logic to create Debian packages. It only creates logic for CI jobs.
