That's one consistent approach.

The other is to document Debian bugs closed by upstream changes along
with an explanation of the upstream change itself.  I think including
such information under "new upstream release", is both courteous and
convenience, and thus should be tolerated.

But omitting it entirely in favor of manual closure of bugs, as you
suggest, is also acceptable in my view.

Closing the bug without an explanation is what I object to.
