In my experience, the answer to this is "yes."  In my case, #538907 was
reported against shorewall-perl (built from the shorewall-perl source
package).  Upstream, the Shorewall project reorganized its packages and
shorewall-perl became a dummy binary package built from the shorewall
source package.  The upload that closed that bug was after the switch
of the binary package, and the bug was in fact properly closed.

This I do not know about.
