The one I had in mind:

Release tarball is the same, they don’t change anything w.r.t. CMake in
release tarball. Maybe it’s just one project and all other Arch Linux
packages are not affected, but dropping BUILD_TYPE automatically at repo
scale does not seems a good idea. I would prefer a todo list with
instructions on checking what BUILD_TYPE and more importantly FLAGS
where actually used by the build, even if I know you would rather have
avoided one.
