The package libimage-exiftool-perl (which provides exiftool) is maintained in Debian.

The Debian maintainers can't update the package to a new upstream version as Debian is "freezed" right now (normal process before the new Debian Release).
But they are allowed to fix security issues and they had fixed this security issue in version 12.16+dfsg-2:

We have the Debian version with the fix in kali-rolling.
