The nvidia drivers are packaged in Debian as both 'source' (source for the Linux glue layer and object files for the OS-independent part) to be built using DKMS and as binary modules built against Debian kernel packages. Both packages are in non-free and not on official media, which perhaps provides the necessary separation.
