I think it's the first time I see this message, so this should be the

Yes, it should do so. If it's not working that could be a problem.

The "Current..." one is the actual translation for that string, be it
upstream or of your team.

Exactly. Packaged is the string that was shipped with the last
langpack, it doesn't mean that that string is upstream though.

You can find more info on translation precedence in Launchpad here:

Hope it can be of some help.
