But only for older Deb based releases. For the newer ones I get the
following error: "unrecognized file for a v1.0 source package"

That's why I mentioned tar.gz file few days ago :)

Which seems to be known one, it was reported 2 months ago:

Would it be possible to adapt the Debtransformer and have tar.bz2 files
be repackaged into tar.gz files? For rpms bz2 is required,

tar.gz also works fine for rpms.
At least, we have such in spec file:

Source: PKGNAME-%{version}.tar.gz

I know, see below:

No, rpm doesn't require bz2 (why should it). Just use a gzipped
tarball if you also want to build debs.

Because of this warning:
ib2008.src: W: source-or-patch-not-bzipped ib2008_linux.tar.gz
A source archive or patch in your package is not bzipped (doesn't have the
.bz2 extension). Files bigger than 100k should be bzip2'ed in order to save
space. To bzip2 a patch, use bzip2. To bzip2 a source tarball, use bznew
