yes Stretch is still supported with DietPi scripts. However it could happen that Debian software packages will not be updated anymore. But this is out of DietPi control as DietPi is taking care on their own scripts only.

But when DietPi builds on Stretch switches to Buster and its upgraded programs (ex: NAA 3.60 on Strech and 4.1.1 on Buster) ? ;)

well that's a pure functionality of Debian. Changing the source list to Buster will lead to update all available packages the the buster version as well.

The rule of thumb is, the less software installed on your system, the higher chance for a successful upgrade. The chances for a successful and fully functional upgrade are decreased by a number of 3rd-party packages installed on your current system. From this reason, remove any obsolete standard repository and 3rd-party software before you attempt the upgrade. The aptitude command might help you to find any 3rd party software package currently installed on your Debian system.
