When the CVE first appeared it was not yet clear where exactly the
vulnerabilities lie, thus we kept the TODO as per 

TODO: check details and correct vulnerability location

Now that you apparently found the root cause and followed up upstream
in the bugzilla, right thing would be to replace the source package
tracking entries to the correct source. 

So basically replace tracking of slibsdl2 and libsdl1.2 with
libsdl2-image and sdl-image1.2 instead.
