I think Debian buster was the last release to support BE mips.
Basically nobody is using that anymore. Too many limits.
People use mipsel these days.

If I remember right there are some development boards where the endianess is
switched at boot time. I still wouldn't spend time into it except you need

We are testing gpsd on sparc64, which is big-endian.
