It is up for adoption but this is not the same as orphaned by any means.

As the report says:

The maintainer of this package has stated his intention to orphan it, but he
is still maintaining it.

I'm stressing the "still maintaining part" of this sentence. Why on earth
is a package like that moved to orphaned? And who decided to treat these
packages like those who are really orphaned, which no one actively
maintains? I will not close the bug since the package can be adopted but I
will keep it unless it is.

It appears that you are mixing stuff here that is different and should be
treated differently.
