Yes, it sets up the pinning in /eta/apt/preferences and has a cronjob
to remove the pinnings once an RC bug is closed.

So immediately it aborts the installation run (which is a bit
annoying) but that's only the first time you decide to not install
$package because of $bug. After that you just won't see
$package/$version until the $bug is fixed.
