Bug#935334: debootstrap: man page says that --include will add package to download and extract list, but an experiment shows opposite

Package: debootstrap
Version: 1.0.115
Severity: normal
It is known that debootstrap first extracts packages without writting to dpkg database
using "dpkg-deb" or "ar" and then unpacks and configures packages using more high-level
I will refer to that low-level stage (when we extract packages using "dpkg-deb" or "ar") as
extract stage.
Manual page says: "--include=alpha,beta Comma separated list of packages which will be
added to download and extract lists."
So, it follows from manual page that --include=alpha will add a package to set of packages,
which are extracted at extract stage. But experiment shows that this is not true. So,
please either fix debootstrap or its manual page.
Same for --exclude.
