For Go *module* builds, we do the same. Dependent modules are
downloaded as part of "make fetch", not as separate packages. Really,
packaging every little Go library individually is unsustainable, there
are far too many. Also, if you build everything in a module (as
opposed to the subset required to build, say, Kubernetes or Hugo or
Caddy or whatever), you typically need tons of extra dependencies.
