I think it is often a bug, but rarely if ever a serious bug.
I'd say that a good test is whether you can produce a clean, simple
(adding build-conflicts seems like a fine answer in a lot of places).
If something like build-conflicts is sufficient, then sure, file the bug
with a patch if it actually annoys you.
If the patch is going to be ugly, then perhaps it's not worth it.
