He has the right to think that you sucks at filling changelogs,
regarding how you fill changelogs.
Anybody has the right to express a point of view on anybody else work,

You said you have "to list each change in the upstream changelog" to
know which bug can be declared as closed. And that's, as maintainer,
your job, isn't it? But is it users job to do it too?

Is this mature?

You still did not answer to the question: is it too much extra work
you can afford to add in the changelog what permits you to declare a
bug closed?
