No idea; apt's resolver is sometimes creative.  Other examples include
[1], [2], [3].

  [1]: https://buildd.debian.org/status/logs.php?pkg=hplip&ver=3.20.6%2Bdfsg0-1&arch=amd64
  [2]: https://buildd.debian.org/status/logs.php?pkg=gnome-applets&ver=3.37.2-1&arch=amd64
  [3]: https://buildd.debian.org/status/logs.php?pkg=kopete&ver=4%3A20.04.1-1&arch=amd64

That's probably not required for apt to find the unwanted solution.
