In this case they should not be closed via a changelog entry for the new
version, but with a simple mail to the BTS. See  for details how to
do so (please remember to include the Version: header with the first
version in Debian that fixed the bug).

Please do so first, for example by asking for the new version in the
BTS. You can also include your proposed NMU diff if you want to help
the maintainer. A NMU should only be done if the maintainer is busy and
cannot react himself.
