These are 2 cases (request from Jessie user or from maintainer) that I
yet to see :)
Do you have a specific case in mind?

More generally:
- minor: when marked no-dsa or postponed (no-dsa substate), usually
those are usually fixed later in batch, or along with a normal/major
security flaw, to avoid too many security updates (whose impact is not
neutral for users)
- unimportant: those are more rare and usually not fixed at all, because
they are not supposed to impact security in the context of our Debian
