So what do you expect exactly - that a developer will diff the upstream
code to describe exactly how the bug was fixed in excruciating detail in
the debian/changelog?

I'm not Adam but my own hope would be that if a bug is closed by upstream then some note as to what has been fixed would appear in the changelog - "Now correctly handles $THING", for example. This is much more friendly and helpful to read in the changelog, particularly in cases where there are several possible approaches to solving the problem.
