Yes, but that is not really relevant since the sync process works by
'faking' a .changes file featuring the sync target (e.g. 'intrepid'
instead of 'unstable') and introduces the X-Launchpad-Closes-Bugs fields
in addition to the Debian-Closes-Bugs fields. So in the end, you don't
need care about this problem when writing changelogs.
