Probably because it wasn't a false positive but a true possitive.

Inside the hobbit-plugins package there are some scripts which can be
used to build a backported version for Wheezy systems and earlier.

Have a look at debian/rules in the source package:

If the first changelog entry says the package is targeted for
wheezy-backports, the build should automatically adjust the
dependencies, paths, variables and so on.

But I haven't used them for years now, so I don't know if they still

Example workflow on buster to build the buster hobbit-plugins as wheezy
backport (untested):

On buster:

$ apt-get source -d hobbit-plugins

Then copy the hobbit-plugins_20180610* files to a wheezy box.

Alternatively do a

$ git clone https://salsa.debian.org/debian/hobbit-plugins.git

on the wheezy box.

On the wheezy box do:

$ dpkg-source -x hobbit-plugins_20180610.dsc
$ cd hobbit-plugins-20180610
$ dch -v "20180610~bpo7+1" --distribution wheezy-backports-sloppy 'Rebuild for wheezy-backports-sloppy'
$ dpkg-buildpackage
