-compliance in line 1119 sounds like script text/merge_debian_isos.
"converted to upper case" sounds like Rock Ridge information is not used
when the names get displayed.

What operating system do you use to inspect the resulting ISO ?
The observed effect would be explainable if it is MS-Windows, which does
not care for Rock Ridge. But Debian GNU/Linux should perceive and show the
Rock Ridge names: long and with proper upper/lower case.

So did you try booting the ISO ?
E.g. as virtual CD-ROM of a virtual machine or from USB stick after putting
it there as plain copy as prescribed by

What do your get from this xorriso run ?
  xorriso -indev ...insert.ISO.image.file.address.here... -ls --

I expect that you see names like
If so, then the ISO should be usable for booting and installing Debian.

If you want to see the mixed case names on MS-Windows, then insert command
  -joliet on \
in the xorriso command list at line 1118, so that it looks like
  -stream_recording on \
  -joliet on \
  -compliance no_emul_toc

Have a nice day :)
