No.  They are bugs _only if_ the library changes soname, thus
requiring (potentially) two library packages.

Even then, it isn't really a problem, since presumably the
maintainer will remove the binary from the older library
package when packaging the newer soname library.  lib1 depends
on lib2, lib2 conflicts with lib1 << some.version.
