Apparently we inherited this issue from Arch. The scripts update-usbids (which updates /var/lib/usbutils/usb.ids ) and update-pciids which are provided in Debian are not included, and they are using a stale source. The current source is: https://github.com/gregkh/usbutils/releases

Arch is using hwids as usb.ids/pci.ids replacement made by Gentoo, however seems it contains more features than Debian and still under development; however Arch doesn't built it from source and uses git. For that reason, i made a new PKGBUILD that builds it from source with more features than Arch and using the latest revision since it's a database package. Could you test it if solves your issue?
