I cannot speak for Louis, but I just run 'apt update' followed by 'apt
upgrade'. When a new branch is released, I just do as you suggest,
comment out the old repo line in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/van-belle.list 
and create a new one with the next repo e.g.

# AptVanBelle repo for samba.
#deb http://apt.van-belle.nl/debian buster-samba414 main contrib non-
deb http://apt.van-belle.nl/debian buster-samba415 main contrib non-

Then run 'apt update' and 'apt upgrade'

Always worked for myself.
