Spell out your words, and write clearly, please.

Yes, it's a 'normal' RPM, but as the name implies, it has the debug information enabled. That is, the programming flags/switches/etc., that the developers put in, to enable folks to troubleshoot the program.

In general you don't want/need the debug rpm. Usually just for debugging a problem. The debuginfo kernel for example is used for diagnosing crash dumps, but is not run as the day-to-day kernel. The debug data makes it bigger and (probably) slower.
