Ok, I've got it now:

The git tags are on the "maint" branch in the samba.org repo, but the 
"maint" branch has been merged to the "master" branch (repeatedly), so 
when I clone the repo it *looks* like I'm seeing v3.1.9 plus a _bit_, 
but actually it's plus a _lot_.

If I did a git checkout of the actual tagged commit then I would see the 
same thing Ubuntu has. But I didn't, I've been using git HEAD all this 
time, and never noticed it was different.

If Debian has -o and -p then apparently they did the same as me?

How confusing!

Perhaps the NEWS.txt file should say something about the extra features? 
Then I would have noticed the discrepancy. Of course, it would make 
merging harder.
