dpkg tells you what's been installed from packages.  If you're using
"make" and "make install", then you've stepped outside the packaging
system and will have to take responsibility for it yourself.

You might be better off backporting the packages from Ubuntu 16.04

You probably didn't install it in such a way that the new sshd will in
fact be running.
