i'm not sure whether i understood what you are actually asking (or if
you are asking anything at all)

nevertheless, two notes:
- - usually a debian package should _not_ install into /usr/local, but
directly into /usr.
/usr/local is for those that don't use debian packages

- - if you are interested into what a package installs, you could do...
to get a list of files installed by an already installed package:
$ dpkg -L <packagename>
to get the contents of a package prior to instaling it
$ dpkg -c <archivename>.deb
you could also simply extract the package to a place of your choise with
$ dpkg -x <archivename>.deb /tmp/foo/
