I'm not sure here. A quick investigation shows:

My guess is this is mostly a relict of old days when one often had
multiple sources unpacked in one SOURCES directory so that naming all
patches and sources prefixed with package name was a useful trick to
avoid collision and distinguish which package does the patch belong
