Because it is sane to assume that when a bug is found and fixed in the
same version that it's better to play on the safe side and treat it as
found in that version.

Though one should contact debbugs maintainers if you think this should
be changed.

It's very strange that you think it's ok to mark a bug as fixed in a
specific version even if there was nothing changed in the package to get
the bug fixed IMHO.
