I see only libraries in NEEDED and it is probably generated
automatically. There is no way for the automatic tools to discover the
dependency between pptpd and ppp version.

Besides, even if I would have somehow /usr/lib/ppp/2.4.3 in NEEDED file
of the pptpd, the amount of computation needed to discover which package
offers such thing would be prohibitive. The reciprocal operation (find
which packages use the old path before upgrade) would also be prohibitive.
