Through my experience this is not the case - even the maintainer
doesn't get mail about a bug.
For example I'm listed as a maintainer of epubcheck package, but I
didn't receive
any email about reported bug #773366.
I've sent a mail to owner@bugs.debian.org asking about absence of any
notification about reported bug, but no response since 12/22/14.
