I am not sure I understand what exactly are bugs in buster.
I don't have pointers to Debian bug reports. But I didn't search for
such bugs. I won't be surprised if there are. In contrast, I do have
the authors statement:

Copied from https://lists.sdaoden.eu/pipermail/s-mailx/2020-September/001378.html
, from about the middle of a not short mesaage. The way I understand 
it, the buster version have noticeble issues with i18n. One can

argue how useful it is with today standards. It is hard to fix
bugs in this situation. I do hope that warrants a backport.

As an aside, a backport was accepted at the beginning of November.
Thanks for all people involved.
