Why does Ubuntu have qemu-system-ppc64le at all?

qemu-system-ppc64 can run both ppc64 and ppc64le guests just
fine, it's emulating the same hardware and the endianness is
decided at runtime AFAIK.

Upstream QEMU doesn't seem to know anything about this:

  $ ./configure --target-list=ppc64le-softmmu
  ERROR: Unknown target name 'ppc64le-softmmu'

and it's not in the Debian package, so it must have been
added specifically for Ubuntu.
