We are likely doing nothing worthy of such astonishment or alarm.

Indeed, an extremely quick glance at your package suggests that whilst
dh(1) itself resets to he umask, musescore is calling dh_auto_build

	env GNUMAKEFLAGS="$$GNUMAKEFLAGS --output-sync" \
	    dh_auto_build -- lrelease all

.. and it is this invocation which is creating this ".workspace" file
rather than the fallback "dh $@" one.
