The BTS doesn't read changelogs.  Your .changes file has a list of bugs
it closes right there as its own entry.  That list is automatically
constructed from the changelog entries that you include in the changes

The debian archive software just creates mails to the xxx-done addresses
based on the numbers listed in the Closes: entry of .changes files - it
doesn't care about changelog entries in the changes file and certainly
not about past changelog entries that it'll find only in the package.

If you want the BTS to know which versions have the bug or not use
proper found/notfound commands to the command bot.  Or send a mail to
-done with a proper Version: pseudo header.
