Details

It says:

PKGEXT=".pkg.tar.gz", SRCEXT=".src.tar.gz"

Sets the compression used when making compiled or source packages. Valid suffixes are .tar.gz, .tar.bz2, .tar.xz, .tar.zst, .tar.lzo, .tar.lrz, .tar.lz4, .tar.lz and .tar.Z, or simply .tar to disable compression entirely.

However, .tar is not valid. .pkg.tar would be valid. So it appears that all of those listed here need to be prefixed by .pkg
This task depends upon

Not really an issue with the packaging, we have a separate project for this.

IMO the documentation is correct as is:

Note that the suffix applies to both bases: .pkg and .src

And the suffix can be: .tar.gz, .tar.bz2, .tar.xz, .tar.zst, .tar.lzo, .tar.lrz, .tar.lz4, .tar.lz, .tar.Z, .tar

e.g., this would not be valid as a SRCEXT:

.src.pkg.tar.gz

Would this clarify?

Valid suffixes are {pkg,src}.tar.gz, .tar.bz2, .tar.xz, ...
