That's the idea, yes.
However, there have been other issues recently where the BTS was still
including a bug in the list of bugs it was generating for britney, despite
the fact that the bug was correctly marked as fixed in a version earlier
than what was in testing and in all subsequent versions. I discussed that
case with Don and his opinion at the time was that the multiple source
versions in unstable were causing the issue; the bug wasn't fixed in the
hurd binary and removing the o-o-d hurd packages stopped the BTS flagging
the bug as relevant for britney, with no further action.

Yes, it's migrated. But ftp-master also removed the hurd binaries
yesterday before you tried to close the ftp.d.o bug, so that only proves
that one of those actions fixed it...
